Biography  
Ernest Fredericks


The following is from Steve Beacham, Eureka Springs, Arkansas:

He lived into the 1950's. He died in 1959 and is buried here in Eureka Springs. I live in a small town in Arkansas, Eureka Springs. Ernest and his family moved here from Chicago. I took care of his son until his death. Ernest Fredericks was a pseudonym. He was of Swedish origin, and in Chicago they were the newest immigrant group getting bashed. His real name is Frederick Swedlun. Fred and his son Glenn Swedlun taught art classes here in the Ozarks. Many of the regional landscape paintings from Ernest are of this area. I have many of his later paintings which are signed Fred Swedlun.
