Hans Wigert

Hans Wigert was one of Sweden's foremost landscape painters. His art is characterized by the proximity to nature, especially that of northern Sweden, where he spent large parts of the year. For Wigert, painting was not about exactly reproducing a landscape, but trying capture the emotions that it aroused. He worked in an expressionist tradition, and was not only was one of the foremost painters in this genre, but also a prominent printmaker. Wigert was born in Karlskrona in 1932. He was educated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, and exhibited actively until his death in the summer of 2015. Prints on ed-art.se come from one of Wigert’s printmakers, Atelier Landberg.
