BIOGRAPHY:
An artist who kept meticulous records including a sketch log of his paintings, and clippings of exhibitions, Arthur Lingquist was known for his intimate rural landscapes including many snow scenes.He was born in Helsingborg, Sweden where he studied art. He emigrated to Boston in 1910, hoping to find artistic stimulation. He continued his art studies and earned a scholarship to the New School of Design where classes were later taught in Fall River, Massachusetts. In 1918, he marred Elsie Sjolin, and with the goal of making more money, he worked as a fresco painter for a company that was well known for its theater decorations, halls and mansions. Applying gold and silver leaf became a specialty, and in his spare time he continued his own fine-art painting.Most of his landscapes are done in oil, although occasionally he used watercolor. He also experimented with decorating wooden boxes with an Oriental motif. Favorite subjects were the Berkshires, Vermont's rugged countryside, falling down old barns, rickety fences and leafy paths. He loved painting the coast of Maine and the shoreline around Cape Ann and Rocky Neck. In 1955, he spent a year in Skara, Sweden, where he toured and exhibited his work throughout the cities of that country.He exhibited widely on the East Coast, beginning in the 1920s in Boston, New York and Chicago. In the 30s through the 50s, he exhibited at the Boston Art League, the Business Men's Art Club, and the Copley Society, and at Cape Ann at the North Shore Arts Association.
