「History」 Max Walter Svanberg (1912-1994) was a Swedish surrealist painter, illustrator, and designer. His most prevalent motifs were of women's bodies merged with elements of flora and fauna.
Born in Malmö, Sweden, Svanberg founded the Swedish artist group Imaginisterna in 1948. André Breton devoted the third issue of Medium (1954) to Svanberg, and his reputation continued to grow. Svanberg exhibited at the Galerie de l'Etoile Scellee in 1955. In 1958, he illustrated an edition of Arthur Rimbaud's Illuminations. In 1965 he was awarded the Prince Eugene of Sweden medal.
Svanberg's oeuvre glorifies universal womanhood- whether a clock morphing into a woman or a wondrous female with two heads and three legs, a mouth shaped like a butterfly, or a flower with breasts resembling birds and a body outlined like a landscape. After 1943 he gave up painting in oils, utilizing a technique combining India ink, watercolor, gouache and pastel. He also made collages, "mosaic of pearls." ballpoint pen drawings and lithographs. Many of his works can be found in the modern art museums of Stockholm, New York and Mexico City.
