Artist

Carl Kylberg, 1878-1952, is considered a seminal figure in the Swedish 1900-century art. He was a student at the architecture department at Berlin University and then a student of Carl Wilhelmson at Valand art school in Gothenburg.

Kylberg broke through late, made his debut as a painter in 1919 with the February group at Liljevalchs. He became known to a wider public by the age of 50, but continued to be controversial as an artist. He had a permanent artistic antagonist of Isaac Grünewald and the same year as the Nazis in Germany set up the decisive blow against Entartete Kunst and practically the whole of modernism, Swedish government stopped the purchase of the painting "Uppbrottet" of the National Museum in Stockholm.
