Alfred Wahlberg was a fascinating artist who is considered to be one of the first to bring the French impressionistic style of painting to Sweden. He initially painted in a traditional manner with careful attention to every branch, stone and figure. But after moving to Paris in 1866, he became influenced by the looser approach to landscape painting and adjusted his brushwork accordingly. His interesting blend of old and new ultimately led to medals at the Paris Salon in 1870 and 1872.
Wahlberg is represented in several public collections including the National Museum of Arts in Stockholm.
