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.

"Anna Boberg was born the 3 December, 1864 at Stockholm.  She is a daughter of F. Scholander, who played such a prominent part in the development of modern Swedish architecture, and is the wife of Ferdinand Boberg, one of the most eminent architects in Sweden. With that dauntless energy so characteristic of the highly talented family to which she belongs, she has, during the past few years worked her way up to European fame.

The locality from which she takes her subjects is the Lofoten Islands, off the coast of Norway, and there she has painted those huge mountains rising out of the sea, surrounded by fleets of fishing boats, which have the same form as the old Viking ships, and the crews of which have not a little of the hardiness and courage of the Vikings.

Though certain Swedish critics have not infrequently treated the work of this talented artist with unjustifiable harshness, yet abroad, and especially in Venice and in Paris, these paintings from the North, rendered by a woman of uncommon artistic talent, who combines with her love of art the true Scandinavian fondness for outdoor life, have been greeted with distinct enthusiasm.

Mrs. Boberg often spends long periods in the solitude of these far-away islands, where something of the sturdy spaciousness of old Northern times still survives. "
