This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Ernst Gosta Reimers   (1888-1943)

Ernst Gosta Reimers was born in Goteborg, Sweden, June 3, 1888.  He immigrated to the United States following the outbreak of World War I.  Little is known of his family history but his schooling took place in the town of Kalmar where private teachers, among them the noted artist Anders Zorn, supervised his early art training.

Shortly after his arrival in New York City he met Marie Danielson and they were soon married.  The couple then moved to Erie, Pennsylvania where he was employed at Erie Forge and Steel beginning in 1915.  There he worked as a metallurgist and foreman of the heat treating department.

Reimers painted in oils, pastels and watercolors as a hobby and specialized in landscapes.  He was also an avid collector of works in various mediums of other artists.  The artist exhibited locally but very sporadically.  In 1936 his work won an honorable mention in the local Art Club show. 

In January of 1943 Reimers retired from the Forge after 28 years of service.  Having contracted throat cancer his health declined rapidly.  He died February 20, 1943, at the age of 54.  Artists Joseph Plavcan and Lester Roesner served as honorary pallbearers at his funeral. 

The Erie Public Museum held a Gosta Reimers Memorial Exhibit of the artist’s work in June of 1943.
