Artist. He is remembered for his portraits of Native American subjects and landscapes. He was born in Jonkaping, Smaland, Sweden on February 29, 1872 and studied art in Stockholm, Sweden where he studied under Anders Zorn, and later in Paris, France. In 1897 he immigrated to the US and came to Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas where he taught art. In 1899 he relocated to Colorado Springs, Colorado to paint Native American scenes for the Smithsonian Institution. While there he also painted the art work of the Indian Room of the Savoy Hotel in Denver Colorado, as well as other murals and portraits with relative success, and also became an illustrator for the "Mountain Sunshine" magazine" and "The Gazette." In 1910 he completed murals for two exhibit rooms in Palace of Governors at Santa Fe, New Mexico. He then relocated to New York City, New York and continued to successfully paint portraits, including those of famous American generals of World War I, and became an illustrator for "American History" magazine. He died in New York City at the age of 52 and his ashes were interred beneath a granite boulder on Pike's Peak, Colorado.
