'If someone should ask me if I know Kerstin Hedeby I would say: of course I do, because I do. We went to the Academy of Arts together studying for professor Sven “X:et' Erixon, I would add – not without a certain sense of pride now that she exhibits at Waldemarsudde. (…) We began our studies at the Academy the same year as Prince Eugen died; Gustav V ruled the country; “X:et' was just a young lad not yet in his fifties, and professor Ragnar Sandberg, who tried to teach us how to draw, being younger still. With this I would say that it was all so long ago. I guess that both Kerstin Hedeby and I have forgotten why we decided to be artists in the first place, and even less understands why we still keep at it. But she sang very beautiful, I would say. (…) Listen to her paintings. If you hear nothing, you see nothing. But you do, anyway. You see something as hard and as easy as art.' From the book's excerpt by Stig “Slas' Claesson

In this richly illustrated catalogue, published in conjunction with the exhibition held at Waldemarsudde in 2001, we meet Kerstin Hedeby in a full-figure portrait. The book includes costume sketches made for Igor Stravinsky's “The Rake's Progress', directed by Ingemar Bergman at the Royal Opera in Stockholm in 1961, and for the play “The Prince-Licker' by Lars Norén at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in 1973, together with paintings, portraits, and drawings.

Authors: Stig 'Slas' Claesson, Bengt Lagerkvist, Hans Henrik Brummer
