Anselm Schultzberg was born in Falun in the province of Dalarna where Anders Zorn and Carl Larsson also grew up.  Schultzberg studied at the Swedish Academy of Fine Arts (Konst Akademien) from 1882-1886.  He won the Royal medal in 1886 and as Academy scholar lived in both France and Italy where he devoted his time mainly to landscape paintings.  He received an honourable mention in the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889 and a bronze medal in 1891.   He also won a medal in the World Exhibition in Chicago in 1893.

 

Schultzberg is probably best known for his winter landscapes largely painted in his native Sweden.

 

Schultzberg’s works are represented in the National Gallery of Sweden and the National Gallery of Denmark amongst other collections.
