Fritz Karfve (1880-1967)
Original Oil on Canvas Painting
Artist Bio: Born September 12, 1880, Fritz Karfve was raised at his parent’s home in Malmo, Sweden. He began his artistic training at the age of 14 as a ‘decoration’ artist painting ceilings and doorposts, studying under Edmond Stoltz before working for a Danish company called Fischer. In the evenings, Karfve attended a technical school where he learned the art of ‘kroki,’ a quick study method of sketching live models before they change positions.
The story goes that in 1899, while painting the ceiling of the Trelleborg Theater, Karfve threw his painting utensils to the ground, yelled “I quit!” and vowed to become a ‘real’ artist. He was one of only 25 applicants accepted to the Konstnarsforbundets Art Academy in Stockholm, where he studied under Richard Bergh and befriended other contemporary Swedish artists including Anders Zorn. Karfve spent two years studying in Paris, sponsored by generous friends and associates, where he studied under Emile Renan and Christian Krogh of the Academie Colarrossi. He briefly returned to Malmo before performing a study tour through Holland, Belgium, Italy, France, Germany and Yugoslavia. His exhibitions included Stockholm, Gothenburg,
Malmo, and Lund, as well as Paris, Prague, Berlin, Vienna and Buenos Aires, amongst
others. His work is represented in the Nationalmuesum of Stockholm, as well as museums in Goteborg and Malmo. He was also a member of the Royal Society of Arts in London.
