Artistic Focus The work of Axel Linus is varied and difficult to categorize. Since he lived for many years in the desert, he understandably painted his beautiful and arid surroundings. But he also was a Modernist, sometimes painting night scenes and other Modernist subjects in iridescent colors, superbly composed.
• Born in Öreboro, Sweden, in 1885, Axel Linus became an established portrait and landscape artist in his native country after attending the Royal Academy of Arts in Stockholm and later the Académie Colorossi and Académie Moderne in Paris.
