More information

Composer, musician and artist - like a Renaissance man, Gösta Nystroem moved between different fields. He grew up in an intellectual household and was educated in visual arts and music by his father as a child. After a couple of years at the Royal Music Conservatory in Stockholm in 1913-14, Nystroem devoted himself to both music and art studies and his painting in Copenhagen in 1916-20 and then in Paris in 1920-1932. He was self-taught as a painter, but was strongly influenced by contemporary artists and composers such as Matisse and Debussy. During his years in Paris, Nystroem socialised with and was influenced by GAN, Isaac Grünewald, Nils Dardel, Erik Grate and Sigrid Hjertén. After exhibitions in Copenhagen, Odense and Stockholm, Nystroem switched to creating primarily through music in the 1920s.

Both musically and artistically, Nystroem expressed himself through the two most groundbreaking directions of modernism: cubism and expressionism. Since Gösta Nystroem chose to devote himself primarily to music, it is in this area that he is best known. His artistic production is therefore limited but has always been highly valued and in great demand. It is extremely rare for works by Gösta Nystroem to come onto the market and many wish to add a painting by this important artist to their collection.
