Biography

Swedish sculptor Carl Fagerberg won Honorable Mention for his sculpture Skater at the 1932 Olympics in the category Mixed Sculpturing and Statues. He was a student of the Stockholm Art Academies before he went to France, Germany, France, Italy and Tunis, supported by a Jenny Lind Scholarship. Fagerberg later lived in Stockholm but spent most of his life in Sundbyberg. He was known for his animal sculptures, but also worked as a painter, and created several important works of religious art. As a sculptor, Fagerberg mainly worked with granite, bronze and porcelain, and he also designed medallions and medals. Since 1937 two of his sculptures (Shot putter and Relay Runners) can be found around the Stockholm Olympic Stadium.
