Abstract [en]

Ingrid Vang Nyman’s illustrations to Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking seem to disobey customary perspective logic. The deviation from linear perspective in the illustrations alters the settings and points to the adventurous potential of every day places and objects. The way pictorial perspective is used, in particular perspective that has been toyed with, has a fundamental function in painting and has often signalled a shift or a turning point. The article discusses the innovative use of pictorial effects and places this technique to a larger context in art history.
