Biography

Swedish Tore Strindberg was a sculptor and medalist, and was especially known in the 1920s and 1930s for his bronze sculptures in the classical and realistic style. From 1902-05 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm. Strindberg's works demonstrate the French style of the 16th century, which fascinated a lot of Swedish artists in the 1920s and 1930s, which Strindberg’s poetry and sculptures sought to unite more than any other artist in Sweden.

His brother Nils Strindberg (1872-97) was a photographer and member of the failed 1897 North Pole gas balloon expedition with August Salomon Andrée (1854-97). It was not until 1930 that the bodies of Andrée, Strindberg and another compatriot, Knut Fränkel, were found on the island Kvitøya.
