The artwork for 'Kristin Lavransdatter’ written by Sigrid Undset (published in 1920) was treated like a landscape. It is a tribute to the Norway of the 14th century. The scene is taking place around Trondheim Cathedral which is a key place in the story. The two characters, facing each other at the top of the mountains, are Kristin Lavransdatter and Erlend Nikulausson, her lover. Between them, there’s the city and all the forces that makes their relationship both complicated and beautiful.
‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’
The concept of the artwork for ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude' written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (published in 1967) was focused on the house where the whole story takes place and which is also the place where all the family generations lived. The house, very closed on itself and surrounded by vegetation, is almost hidden from the world. Small key recurring elements of the story are also hidden in the dense vegetation around the house.
