Elsa Hogner-Reuterswärd (1886-1987)

Elsa grew up in Sweden, the daughter of a successful government surgeon who took his family off to Boston in the early 1890s. The young Elsa was educated there, spending three years at the Boston Conservatory of Music from 1903.  Marriage in 1907 took her back to Sweden where she studied at the Royal Academy of Arts before embarking on a career as a professional painter and portraitist.  Her later work is pretty inconsequential but her rare paintings from the 1920s and 30s are very strong, evidenced by her portrait of her niece Hjördis in the Swedish National Museum, Stockholm.
