Sketch: Adrienne De Geer

We went back for a final session at the City Museum. This time I visited the upper floor, which had this exhibition about how Norrköping the city came to be. Wax figures showed off the history of city.

One of the figures portrayed Adrienne De Geer, spouse of Louis De Geer – known as the father of Swedish industry.

She’s a stern-looking, haughty lady. I have no idea why she was surrounded by a chest, barrels or a basket, but for some reason she was. Maybe I should have read the exhibition text as well as drawing?
