Thorsten Harold Lindberg   (1878 - 1950)

Born in Stockholm, Lindberg studied art at a technical school in Stockholm before he immigrated to Chicago in 1901, then moved to Minneapolis in 1909 where he taught at the University of Minnesota until he moved to Omaha, then finally to Milwaukee.  There he worked for the WPA as an artist and a supervisor.  He became known especially for his watercolor painting and for his historical subjects. 

The Milwaukee Theatre has nine murals by Lindberg.
