Biography

Swedish-American sculptor Karl Frederick Skoog often drew his inspiration from traditional American themes: a bas relief of Washington crossing the Delaware, a bronze medallion commemorating Lindbergh's flight, and a bronzed plaster Last Stand of the Giant, showing a bison battling three pumas.

Skoog was born in Väse, Värmland, Sweden, and first studied at the Academy of Arts and Handicraft in Göteborg, then after emigrating to Boston in 1902, studied at the school of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He created a monument in Cambridge for soldiers slain in World War I, and in Philadelphia sculpted figures for the John Morton Memorial Museum, predecessor to the Swedish Historical Museum.
