Biography Otto Hesselbom
"Otto Hesselbom was born in 1848 at Animskog, in the Province of
Dalsland, and it is in this province, situated on Lake Vanem, the
largest lake in Sweden, that he has painted and still paints his
typically Swedish views over blue heights and broad waters.
His artistic development was slow, and it is strange to think that the
meek Mission School boy, who so tardily began his studies at the
Stockholm Academy of Arts, should have been appreciated
in Germany and Italy before his name was even known to Swedish artists
or patrons of art. He strives after simplicity and monumentality,
giving his pictures a lyric quality and a quiet grandeur which are
typical of certain aspects of the Swedish landscape.
