Carin Johanna Nilsson, Fright, Swedish Art Deco Bronze Sculpture, circa 1933

About

Signed and dated on the plinth, Carin Nilsson 1933. Foundry stigma, below signature, Otto Meyers EFTR.FUD. Made with great artistic skill in the unmistakably North European Art Deco esthetics, and exhibiting excellent casting quality, this very elegant sculpture also draws attention of the viewer to the originality and absolute none-triviality and humour of the composition - a splendid nude young woman froze in complete immobility, frightened to death by the little mouse in front of her on the floor, also frozen startled. Carin Johanna Nilsson (Swedish, 1884-1973) was a famous Swedish sculptor and visual artist. Born on September 13, 1884 in Styra, Östergötland, she was the daughter of the inspector Sigfrid Nilson and Hanna Seidlitz. Nilson studied in New York in 1922-1923; and in 1925-1927 at the Gottfrid Larsson's art school, as well as an extra student at the Art Academy in Stockholm. In 1928-1930, she was a student at the Académie Colarossi and at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, where her teachers were Charles Despiau, Henry Arnold and Antoine Bourdelle. During the studies, the artist made extensive trips to the Netherlands, England and Belgium. Karin Nilsson participated in group exhibitions with Östgöta Art Association, the Swedish Public Art Association and the Association of Swedish Konstnärinnor. Her public works include the famous Berga figure at the Normlösa church and chapel at the Uppsala hospital. She was awarded with Östgöta Art Association scholarship in 1928. Karin Nilsson's art consists of a wide variety of works - fountains, birdbaths, busts, athletes, religious figures and stressed decorative reliefs and frescoes. Among the portraits, there are of Alice Trolle at Children's Hospital in Linköping, Nathan Söderblom's in Vaksala and Haile Selassie's in Addis Ababa. Nilsson's works are represented in Sweden at the National Museum and the New Museum (featuring a self-portrait in marble), as well as at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia, USA. Carin Johanna Nilson died in Stockholm, in 1973.
