Swede Olle Nordberg studied at the Academy of Fine Arts from 1920-26 and undertook study trips to Italy, Spain, France and Norway. Nordberg used rustic and rugged design to depict the Stockholm archipelago and northern Sweden. He belonged to a group of artists called the young ones, not to be confused with the young ("the 1909 men”). Nordberg painted Mälaren Swedish landscapes and the heavy earth-bound people in a humorous and imaginative way. His chubby squiggle-like technique, and his expressive brushwork were his characteristics. Nordberg's studio still exists at Munsö and is now a museum.
