This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Karl (Charles) Oskar Haag   (1867 - 1933)

A sculptor who often depicted working people, Haag, born in Norkopping, worked as a laborer, then an apprentice to a potter before studying at the technical arts school in Gothenburg. 

Traveling to Stockholm, then Switzerland, Haag settled in Paris to study before he immigrated to New York in 1903. 

Besides a fountain in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, his work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Swedish Historical Museum, Philadelphia, and Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois.

Biography from Birger Sandzen Memorial Gallery:
Charles Haag

Charles Haag, a native of Norrköping in Östergötland, Sweden, and a watchmaker's apprentice at the age of twelve, arrived in America in 1903, after having studied at Gothenburg and in five countries on the European mainland.

In New York, where he lived before moving to Chicago and Winnetka, Illinois, the Metropolitan Museum in 1906 bought one of his sculptures - the first by an immigrant from Sweden.

Misfortune or tragedy was often portrayed in his creations, but some of his later wood sculpture reflected, on the other hand, a keen sense of humor. He was influenced by Sweden's master carver, Axel Petersson "Döderhultarn" (1868-1925).
