Catalogue Note

Tor Bjurström was born in Stockholm and grew up in a wealthy merchant family interested in music and art. In 1905 he began his studies at the Konstnärsförbundets Skola in Stockholm with Richard Bergh and Carl Nordström as teachers.

Bjurström continued his studies in Copenhagen and in 1908 went to Paris where he became a pupil of Henri Matisse. In 1920 he took up a teaching position at the Valand Academy in Gothenburg where he worked throughout the '20s. During this period he had a profound influence not only on the school but on the artistic life of Gothenburg.
