(Norway, 1856 - 1955)
American, b. Norway
ULAN, 3/14/2013: He painted in the Northwest US before moving to California in 1887. He had a studio in San Francisco. He was a self-taught painter except for brief study in the galleries of Paris in 1908. While in France, he was greatly influenced by the Barbizon painters and their dark palette. Returning to California, he continued to paint landscapes of northern California in the Barbizon style. He was poverty stricken and in legal trouble in 1929, sentenced to two months in jail for aiming a gun at his landlord. He disappeared from San Francisco about 1930. A letter at the Oakland Museum gives his date of death as June 9, 1955 but does not state where he died.
