This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"David Edstrom was born in Sweden in 1873, and came to America as a mere child, his parents settling in Iowa.  Until nearly twenty he lived in the West, at which age, desirous of pursuing an artistic career, he returned to his native country and began his studies at the Stockholm Academy.

He early revealed remarkable talent, particularly in the field of plastic portraiture, and continued his
apprenticeship in Florence and in Paris. Edstrom was seen to particular advantage with his associates of the Konstnarsforbimdet at the Berlin Secession in 1910, and still more recently at Stockholm and Amsterdam, having held this summer in the latter city an important collective exhibition conjointly with his countryman, Carl Larsson.

His portrait busts of Ernest Thiel, Esq., of Professor Knut Kjellberg, of the publisher, Karl Otto Bonnier, and other notable men, display uncommon vigor of characterization and psychological analysis."
