[About Stig Lindberg]

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Lindberg was born in Umeå, a central city in northern Sweden. Art University Konstfack in Stockholm (

Konstfack) to learn painting. In 1937, he joined Gustavsberg and studied under his teacher, Wilhelm Koge, and 12 years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director. Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard-bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop reached its heyday in the era when Lindberg was active, and even now the works of that time are recognized as the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value.

Lindberg's studio was called G-Studion, and young painters were showing great skill. Lindberg retired in 1980 and opened a workshop in Italy where he retired, but died there two years later.
