Emy Kindborg-Edman (1865 - 1935)
Tekla Nordström-Lindeström (1856-1937)
These two forgotten and little researched Swedish women artist, wood engravers, are perhaps more important to the history of Modern Printmaking in Europe than before considered. They are of an even earlier generation then the women that today are known to have embraced colour woodblock printmaking 1900-1910. Of Emy Edman it is known she visited Paris to study wood engraving, there’s a good chance Thekla Lindström also did. Both women became well known by their prints of moon lit landscapes, often copies of their husbands paintings.
