Biography from Roger King Fine Art, A - G:
Alfred Gunnar Bjareby (1899-1967) was a painter, sculptor, and illustrator.  Born in Sweden, he emigrated to the United States in 1923, settling in the Boston area.  He studied with Gustav Boulanger at the Academie Julian in Paris, where he exhibited at the 1933 Salon. In Boston he studied at the Boston Museum School.

He spent time in Rockport and Gloucester, Massachusetts, painting brightly-colored plein-air marine scenes featuring boats and fishermen.  Many of these works were the basis for larger studio paintings, which he exhibited in Boston, Cape Ann, and Ogunquit, Maine.

Bjareby painted murals in Boston's Parker House Hotel and at St. Joseph's Cathedral in New Hampshire, and he was also a book illustrator.

Bjareby was a member of Gloucester's North Shore Art Association, winning exhibition medals in 1942, 1951, and 1955.  He also exhibited in Chicago.

In addition to his career as an artist, Alfred Bjareby was a serious student of mineralogy.  As a boy he bicycled to quarries and outcrops to collect rock specimens and to look for gold.  These youthful interests remained with him, and after his arrival in America, he spent much of his time studying minerals at the Harvard Mineralogical Museum and the New England Museum of Natural History.

In 1937 he joined the Boston Mineral Club, where he associated with the great mineralogists of his day.  Bjareby built one of the finest mineral collections in New England, earning a reputation as one of the twentieth century's outstanding amateur mineralogists.  A species of microcrystal, bjarebyite, was named for him.
