Known for Southwest Indian portraits in various mediums including oil, watercolor, etchings, and woodblock, Carl Oscar Borg was born in Dais-Grinstad, Sweden.

His family was poor, and he was largely self-taught.  He showed early art talent, and as a child copied pictures from books.  At age 15, he apprenticed to a house painter, and at age 20, moved to London and assisted portrait and marine artist George Johansen.

In 1901, he arrived in San Francisco from Swed (showing 500 of 20305 characters).
