Vitalismålningen – the Vitalis painting by Ljunggren

This is a photo of a wall painting by Reinhold Ljunggren a painter from the 1900’s who lived in Trosa for a while and painted lots of Trosa houses and landscapes. But he also did this big painting. It’s a wall in one of the schools in Trosa, Vitalisskolan that have this beautiful painting.

In the picture you see the famous lighthouse outside Trosa city called Christmas lighthouse (Julaftons fyr), the old school that someone tragically burned down long time ago, the church bell tower and the Tureholm castle.

I really like this painting. I saw it almost everyday in myschool days, hundred years ago, but I still remember it and the painting is great inspiration.

Den här bilden visar en väggmålning som Trosamålaren Reinhold Ljunggren gjorde när Vitalisskolan i Trosa byggdes. Den fyller en hel vägg i matsalen. På den kan vi se Julaftons fyr, gamla skolan som sorgligt nog någon brände ner, klockstapeln vid Trosa kyrka och Tureholms slott.

 Jag såg den här väggen varje dag för hundra åt sedan när jag gick i den skolan. Bilden ligger fortfarande kvar tydligt i minnet och inspirerar mig fortfarande väldigt mycket.
