Biography  
Fredrik Wilhelm (Frederick) Jacobsen


Fredrik Jacobsen wanted to be a sculptor and traveled for that reason to Paris. Here he was introduced, among other things, to Jean Heiberg in Sarah and Michael Stein's home, where Heiberg first saw a larger collection of Henri Matisse's work.

Jacobsen acquired later an atelier in Stavanger, but had better luck as a painter than sculptor. He opened the art trade and concert agency in Stavanger and played a role in the art environment in Rogaland.
