The Swedish ceramicist Alf Wallander began his career as a painter at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, and continued his studies in Paris in the late 1880s. His paintings had a certain Symbolist quality to them as introduced by the artist’s friend Oscar Björck, and this style later recurred when became a ceramicist. Working with the Rörstrand Porcelain Factory, Wallander soon became the dominant artist of the Swedish Art Nouveau movement for over a decade. He was also highly influenced by the British Arts and Crafts movement, which reveals itself in the utility of the artist’s furniture designs.
