Alma Malm
Mary Olsen (09/27/2014)
I recently found a beautiful little 5 x 7 winter scene water color at a yard sale. It is signed Alba Malm and dated 1983 The title on the mat is Winter Sunset Kansas printed in pencil and it is again signed Alba Malm. The man selling it said it was done by his grandmother. Could this be one of the final paintings of Alba Malm Almquist?





Name Confusion for Artist's Last Name
Lonnie Dunbier (09/17/2013)
Relative to the name of this artist, there appears to be confusion as to whether or not the first name is Alba or Alma and whether the last name is Almquist or Dahlquist. In the book by Alan Winquist, Touring Swedish America, Second Edition: Where to Go and What to See, p. 163, Alba Malm Almquist is described as the daughter of Gustav Malm (1869-1928) and "noted for oil and watercolor landscapes." (p. 163) Find a Grave.com has the listing of Alma Malm Almquist (1897-1986), married to Edward C. Almquist and daughter of Gustaf Nathanael Malm as buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Lindsborg, Kansas. (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Malm&GSiman=1&GRid=48146968&) And Kansas scholar Susan Craig in her Biographical Dictionary of Kansas Artists lists the name as Alba Almquist. (See AskART biography) However sources advertising her work, Gateway Galleries and Ebay, have description of the same person with the name of Alma Malm Dahlquist. My conclusion is that the correct name is Alba Malm Almquist and that the last name of Dahlquist is incorrect. Lonnie Dunbier, AskART.com
