(1892 - 1944)
Carl Adolph Hjalmer Persson Redin was active/lived in New Mexico, Arizona, California / Sweden. Carl Redin is known for southwestern landscape painting-trees, mesas and mountains.
Known for his paintings of Southwest landscapes, especially autumn
scenes of aspen and cottonwood trees and of lighting effects on mesas
and mountains, Carl Adolph Hjalmer Persson Redin was born in Sweden, near Stockholm. He
came to America in 1913, after having tried to support his impoverished
family in Sweden. He had an early interest in art, which he had
studied in Stockholm about 1906. Reportedly a portrait by Redin
was hung at the Stockholm Royal Academy.
For a short period, he lived in Chicago, where he worked "varnishing
and enameling apartments for a building contractor." (Powers) In
1916, he moved to New Mexico because he had tuberculosis and needed a
drier climate than that of Chicago.& ... Displaying 750 of 5256 characters.
