Eighteenth century painting of fixtures and fittings in rural Hälsingland, where painting in farms and churches is studied. The painters Paul Hallberg in Hudiksvall and Jonas Hertman in Bollnäs, their networks and completed works that can be linked to each group of painters are at the focus of the study. The aim is to reconstruct the context of the physical paintings in order to see the context in which they were produced and how they have been passed down from generation to generation. The thesis is planned to be completed in 2023.
Lars Nylander is also an antiquarian at Hälsingland museum (20% of full-time). The project is financed by the Berit Wallenberg Foundation.
