    Biography

    Bertram Schmiterlöw was a Swedish painter, printmaker, draughtsman and sculptor. Bertram Schmiterlöw’s artistry extends through more than five decades and is characterized by figurative, expressive and colorist works where light and surface jointly create the setting. The themes are often of a desolate, dreamy atmosphere where people are portrayed more as staffage figures rather than as the primary subject matter of the work. His works include human depictions and natural scenes from Sweden and the Mediterranean countries. Schmiterlöw also painted portraits of many important members of the Swedish and Argentine trade, industry and government institutions. In addition he was commissioned to do the portraits of many politicians, royal family members and cultural celebrities in Sweden. Schmiterlow had his artistic training at Otte Skölds art school but left Sweden for Europe and Argentina in his early years. His artistry is inspired by Edward Hopper, Giorgio Morandi, Pedro Figari among others. He is the halfbrother of actress Vera Schmiterlöw. In 1974 he was decorated with the Royal Order of Vasa and in August 2001 with the Order of the Liberator General San Martín.
