Bengt Lindström Acrylic Painting on Paper with Gilded Frame, circa 1975

About

An acrylic painting on paper by Swedish artist Bengt Lindström (1925-2008), circa 1975, with gilded wood frame and plexiglass. The work is signed but not dated. Based on the imagery, specifically the manner in which the "snarling dog" is painted on the right bottom corner, we are dating this to 1975. He used this image in this manner repeatedly in his lithographs during 1975. Even though this image recurs repeatedly in his work over many years, this specific aggressive interpretation was particular to that year. Unlike many of Lindström's paintings on paper, this one was not mounted on canvas. Lindström was known for both his outdoor sculptures and his paintings. Noted for their distinctive color palette and distorted figures, Lindström’s paintings are reminiscent of those of the CoBrA artist Karel Appel. Born in Storsjö Kapell, Sweden on September 3, 1925, Lindström moved to Stockholm in 1944 to attend the Isaac Grünewald Art School. He went on to study at the Copenhagen Fine Arts School in Denmark under Aksel Jörgensen. In 1947, the artist moved to Paris, where he worked mainly in lithography and engraving, and trained with Fernand Léger and André Lhote. Settling in the French town of Savigny-sur-Orge, Lindström began creating figurative art derived from the monsters and gods found in Norse mythology. Though he lived in France much of his life, the artist died in Sundsvall, Sweden on January 29, 2008. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, the Modern Museet in Stockholm, and the Tate Gallery in London, among others.
