Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd was born in Stockholm in 1934.
His artistic career started already at the age of fourteen, and a few years later he set out for Paris and the Art School of Fernand Legér. CFR held his first exhibition in Paris in 1952.
He returned to Sweden and studied from 1952 to 1955 at the Art Academy of Stockholm. A long period of study tours all over Europe then followed. For a few years CFR held a chair at the
Stockholm Arts Academy, which he finally left to settle down in Bussigny in Switzerland in 1969.
Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd is extremely creative and always want to find new ways and modes of expression for his creativity. This became very obvious when after a stroke he had to start working with his left hand - something which he has managed very well.
CFR is one of very few Swedish artists who have acquired international fame, and he has held exhibitions in many museums and galleries, all over Europe as well as in the United States. CFR is represented in most museums and important private collections of modern art.
