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.

Prince Eugen, son of Oscar II and Queen Sofia, was born the 15 August, 1865 at Drottningholm Castle.  He  began to paint about 1885, and studied in 1887 at Paris, where Puvis de Chavannes seems to have aroused his taste for decorative art.  He exhibited for the first time in 1889 in Paris, and during the last few years has lived at Valdemarsudde, in Djurgarden Park, Stockholm, occupying the beautiful villa built for him by the distinguished architect, Ferdinand Boberg.

The services Prince Eugen has rendered modem Swedish art are inestimable.  He has generously aided and supported a large number of young painters, has exercised an extensive patronage in the shape of orders for pictures, and finally has himself created genuine works of art and studied his craft deeply and without a trace of dilettantism.  It is particularly the Swedish summer night, with all its feeling of unison and melting into one great harmony, that he depicts as no one else has done. Tegner  describes the Scandinavian summer night with the words: 'Twas not day, 'twas not night — a-poise between the two,' and for the Swedes, Prince Eugen's pictures wake into deep and rich life their innermost and profoundest feelings for nature.  Yet Prince Eugen paints not alone the more remote appeal of distant wooded and watered landscape, but also devotes his energies to recording the constantly shifting panorama of life and scene in and about Stockholm. And to no theme does he fail to impart that note of refined and exalted lyricism which is the dominant characteristic of his temperament.
