Gunnar Wennerberg


Gunnar Gunnarsson Wennerberg (1863-1914) was a Swedish artist and pattern designer. After his studies he traveled to Paris, where he teamed up with Prince Eugen and the French artists Bonnart and Gervex. He spent much of his time in their studios and devotes himself to painting flower paintings. The first exhibition took place in Paris in 1889, which also resulted in an honorable prize. In 1895 he was connected to Gustavsbergs Porslinsfabrik, first as a pattern designer, later also as manager. Here he trained artists such as Per Ekberg. In addition, he also created some appreciated works for Kosta Glasbruk during the same period. His works are represented at, among others, the National Museum in Stockholm, and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
