A very Rare Swedish folk art wall panel from Nydala monastery, painted on canvas.

A very rare 19th century Swedish folk art painted wall panel on canvas, painted on both sides, with a later frame from Nydala monastery

Nydala Monastery was built in 1143 by the Cistercian monks emitted from Claivaux in France. The monastery is located in a flat, open cultural landscape and built entirely in accordance with the rules of the Cistercian order: It should be in a fertile area far from other settled areas. It was important that the Cistercian monks lived separate from the outside world, which is seen on this wall panel. The panel here from the 1800's was part of a series of six with different motifs from the area around the monastery.
