This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Sweden in 1892. Swanson first shipped out on a sailing vessel in 1906. Settling in San Francisco in 1930, he was a longshoreman on the docks for 30 years. A self-taught artist, he lived on the Embarcadero at the Harbor Hotel which served as his studio. When not at sea, he modeled sailing ships. His best known is the 12' model of the Preussen in the San Francisco Maritime Museum. Two other ship models of the James Ralph and the Golden Gate belong to the Sailors Union of the Pacific. He died in San Francisco on Oct. 17, 1960.
