This web site is dedicated to informing about Swedish-American artist
and illustrator Gustav Tenggren. The content is a brief review of Tenggren's life, and it has no
pretention on being complete.
For those who seek more thorough information about Gustaf Tenggren
remains to wait for the English version of the biography I have written about him. The Swedish art monograph "Gustaf Tenggren – en biografi" is the result of nearly 25 years research in
archives, interviews with relatives and friends, and retrieving books and images
from auctions and private collectors. Apart from being an assembly of the
information on Gustaf known so far, it contains many new and so far not common
facts about the artist's life and production. My hope is that the reader will
greet it as the standard work on Gustaf Tenggren that has been missing
for so long.
Lars Emanuelsson will hold lectures on Gustaf Tenggren's life and work. The performance is held in English and will be modeled after the wish of the client. Gustaf Tenggren's amazing career fits very well for various aspect: entrepreneurial, immigration, children's cultur, art history etc.
Price according to the Swedish Writer's Union's recommendations.
The first comprehensive biography on Gustaf Tenggren, "Gustaf Tenggren – en biografi", has been published in Swedish by Kartago publishing company. An english version is planned. Until then, see all about the book here!
