Biography Fredrik Blombergson
Fredrik B. Blombergson (1826 - 1900)
Born in Soderhamn or in Bergsjo, Blombergson was a landscape painter in
his native Sweden before he immigrated to settle in Chicago from 1868
until 1873. He returned to Soderhamn in 1873 because his
detailed, almost photographically-realistic canvases did not sell in
Chicago, according to Ernst W. Olson in a History of the Swedes of Illinois (1908).
