Astrid Lindgren’s Näs in Vimmerby opened their sixth summer exhibition last Saturday. The theme is the works of the artist and children’s book illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman, mostly known for her illustrations of Pippi Longstocking. Vang Nyman is also considered to be the one that introduced modernism among the Swedish children’s book illustrators. Some 50 original illustrations are displayed, along with Pippi playing areas for both children and adults.
