Carl Larsson art

Thanks to Adam for sending me this outstanding drawing by Carl Larsson. I think it's really good considered either as a nude or just as a drawing.
The composition is unusual, at first look it falls apart on the left, but he may be purposefully pushing the envelope, I think I could get used to it. And the world certainly does not want for drawings/paintings with safe and overly balanced compositions.

I really like this guy's work. It has both that old timey feel but also seems very modern and fresh.
