The following biographical statement regarding Alfred Jansson comes from askart.com and was originally provided by R.H. Love Galleries:
Alfred Jansson began his professional career in his native Sweden. He arrived in the United States in 1889 to carry out a mural commission for the Swedish Building at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Immediately he became active in Chicago’s art scene, joining the Palette and Chisel Club and other organizations.
His delicate, moody landscapes reveal the many facets of nature’s wonders, from snow scenes, to richly ornamented autumn forests and the drifting clouds and sunsets of summer. Jansson exhibited in the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, then showed his works regularly at the Art Institute of Chicago’s annual exhibitions (1898-1925).
