This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

"Otto Hesselbom was born in 1848 at Animskog, in the Province of Dalsland, and it is in this province, situated on Lake Vanem, the largest lake in Sweden, that he has painted and still paints his typically Swedish views over blue heights and broad waters.

His artistic development was slow, and it is strange to think that the meek Mission School boy, who so tardily began his studies at the Stockholm Academy of Arts, should have been appreciated
in Germany and Italy before his name was even known to Swedish artists or patrons of art. He strives after simplicity and monumentality, giving his pictures a lyric quality and a quiet grandeur which are typical of certain aspects of the Swedish landscape.

Hesselbom now resides at Seffle in Varmland, near Lake Vanem, and has recently had the satisfaction of seeing himself better and better appreciated.  His pictures have been purchased by leading museums at home and abroad, and he is an artist who has made his way by dint of extraordinary energy and singleness of purpose."
