Arwid Karlson

We believe that Arwid Karlson was a Swedish landscape painter, born in 1918 and based in and around Malmö.

Whilst the majority of his paintings are of the Skåne countryside (painted between 1948 and 1960), he did make study trips to France (Paris), Spain and Portugal.

This artist's paintings are signed 'ARW Karlson' but are often catalogued as 'Arvid Karlsson'. His dates, we believe, are often mistakenly listed as (1907-1964) - These are the dates for the artist Arwid Sigfrid Karlson, who's works held in the collections of the Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art) in Stockholm and the Institut Tessin, Paris
