Anna-Lisa Thomson (1905-1952) painting a woman motif in the early 1950s. Toward the end of her life, Anna-Lisa moved towards a deeply personal, surrealistic style. This is most apparent in the illustrated poem collection, “Eko av dagars ljusa klang” (Echo of Day Bright Sound). Many of the illustrations were sterling pieces of art, covering full pages. In 1952, Anna-Lisa succumbed to sickness at the too early age of 47.
