John Fabian Carlson (Swedish/American, 1874-1945)


Also known as:  Carlson, John; Carlson, John F.; John F. Carlson

Birth Place: Kalmar (Kalmar, Sweden)

The native Swede John Fabian Carlson became a household name in New York art circles during the early 20th century, training at the Albright School of Art with Lucius Hitchcock and the Art Students League with Frank Vincent DuMond. In 1906, Carlson was instrumental in relocating the League's summer school from Connecticut to Woodstock, New York, where he imaged the still beauty of the surrounding countryside in fine Tonalist landscapes. Director of this summer school in 1911, Carlson established the John F. Carlson School of Landscape Painting in 1922.

Carlson's paintings are in numerous museum collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago; Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and Maier Museum of Art, Randolph-Macon Women's College, Lynchburg, Virginia.
