Description:

In 1509 one of the greatest Swedish painters, Albertus
Pictor, passed away. On church walls and
church ceilings, he has told the stories of the Bible
and of the eternal questions of life through his art.
The same themes also inspired the composers of
the time to move us with musical stories of the
Virgin Mary, the life of Christ and of love, death,
pain and joy in medieval and renaissance Europe.
Medieval man constantly strived to ensure his
place in heaven through prayers and good deeds.
Most of all, he turned to the Virgin Mary to pray
for her intercession. Above Albertus Pictor’s self
portrait in the church of Lid, where he paints himself
as a fashion concious man in his prime, he has
even written Memento mei Alberto pictor huius
ecclesie – ”Remember me, Albertus, painter
of this church”
