Einar Jolin (1890–1976), artist, composed his paintings in calm color planes with graceful contour lines. His style is slightly naïve, superficially simplified and decorative. The colors are blonde and cool, shimmering as if painted on silk. His paintings often have an atmosphere of Sunday peace. Jolin entered the Artists' Association's painting school in 1907. The following year he traveled with Isaac Grünewald to Paris, where he became Matisse's pupil. He became good friends with Nils Dardel, and in the summer of 1913 they depicted street life in the medieval town of Senils. Both Jolin and Dardel were clearly inspired by French naivists, not only Rousseau but also by Séraphine who lived in Senils itself. Just before the outbreak of war in 1914, he settled in Stockholm, and from Söder's heights he painted peaceful views of the harbor entrance. He is regarded as an important Stockholm portrayer.
