Biography from Braarud Fine Art:

Robert Swaim (1848-1918):

Born in Indiana, Robert Swaim was teaching painting in Logansport, Indiana by 1880.  By 1893 he was in Helena, Montana.  The Chicago World Book Company in 1893 published a book on the State exhibitions at The World’s Columbian Exhibition in Chicago and on page 58 in the Montana section it states:  “Perhaps the most popular artist in this State is Mr. Robert Swaim, of Helena, but the one deserving special notice is Mr. C. Russell, generally known as the Cowboy artist."

By 1907 Swaim was in Seattle where he is listed in the city directory as an artist in 1907, 1914 and 1918.

Biography from J. Franklin Fine Art, Inc.:
He is known for painting Western subject matter that includes wildlife and Indians in their natural western settings, as well as general landscapes of the Northwestern States (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana).
