Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

"Gunnar Hallstrom was born the 2 May, 1875 at Stockholm.  He studied from 1893 to 1897 at the Academy of Arts, and has resided during the past ten years at Bjorko in Lake Malaren. In this beautiful island, where the town of Birka was once situated, and where the French monk,
Ansgar, in the middle of the ninth century, first preached the Christian faith, there still survives something of the ancient Swedish peasant culture, and this profoundly imaginative artist has made Bjorko the focus of his esthetic activity.  He paints and draws not only ancient graves, over which birches are soughing, but also young, living Sweden — light-haired men and women, dancing roamed the Walpurgis Night fires, or speeding on skis over the frozen waters of the lake. Hallstrom is an entirely independent artist.

He has a strong feeling for the decorative, which is displayed to advantage in his tapestries and vignettes, and notably in the strikingly suggestive and characteristic poster, which he has designed for the present exhibition."
