The exhibition was a collaboration between Norrbottensmuseum and Södertälje cultural committee, starting at Norrbottens museum. Around 70 pictures from Scania’s 70s were shown at the same time in the gallery. The Hamsun illustrations were displayed in the accompanying graphics cabinet. A correspondence between the art gallery’s Per Drougge, the Norrbotten museum and Karl-Erik Harr is preserved in the art gallery’s archives. After closing in Södertälje, the exhibition went on tour in two versions in Northern Sweden. In Södertälje, in connection with the exhibition, the artist was invited to talk about his illustrations. In a letter to Karl-Erik Harr from art gallery director Per Drougge, it appears that he had been on a visit to Södertälje. Some lithographs were bought in connection with the exhibition for the municipality’s collection.
