Description
Old man 85, woodcarving, is signed "Anton Pearson" and is in good condition. Anton Pearson was born Lund, Sweden, May 23, 1892; died Lindsborg, Mar. 1967. He was a painter, sculptor, spec. wood and stone. He studied at the Technical School in Lund, Sweden. Coming to the U.S. in 1912, he traveled with horse and wagon through seven states, floated down the Mississippi in a houseboat and hiked through Arkansas and Missouri. En route back to Chicago from the 1915 San Francisco Exposition, he stopped in Lindsborg, met Birger Sandzen and stayed there to study painting, earning a BFA from Bethany College in 1918. Pearson established a studio in Lindsborg, worked as an oil man and, with his carvings, immortalized likenesses of the older men and women of the Swedish colony in Lindsborg. During World War II, Pearson lived in Wichita working for Boeing as a pattern maker and teaching woodcarving. Collections: Sandzen Memorial Art Gallery; Old Mill Museum, Lindsborg, Kansas.
