Biography

Swede Edward Hald was a painter, graphic designer and glass and ceramic artist, who initially studied to become an architect in Leipzig and Dresden. In 1907, he decided to become an artist and attended art schools in København, Stockholm and Paris, e.g. under Henri Matisse. He started painting landscapes, portraits and still lifes, but after 1915 he focused on design. Along with the glass blower Knut Bergqvist and his colleague [Simon Gate] Hald developed the so-called Graal glass (Glass Cup) and they developed the Swedish variant of Art Deco. In 1925 at the World Exhibition in Paris, he had his international breakthrough together with Gate. Hald took part twice in the Olympic Art Competitions, 1932 and 1936.
