AgnesJohansson

This painting was made by my grandmother Agnes Johansson (1907-1986), a woman that lived a quiet life far from any kind of attention. She loved to paint scenes of nature and local demand for her work were high. She used to charge for canvas and paint, never for the actual work. I think her fame peaked with an article or two in magazines and some local newspapers.

I grew up watching her at work and I will track down some of her paintings and present a story about her in a coming issue of RETROFUTURE. I really need to do that before I am done with this hobby of mine.

She should be remembered.
