 COMMENTS: Born in Skelsior, Denmark  in 1841, Carl Christian Dahlgren served in the Danish Army during the Austro-Prussian War and later enrolled at the Copenhagen Academy of Arts where  studied privately with Carsten Henreksen. He immigrated with his younger brother, Marius to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1872 where he worked as a draftsman and artist for the Surveyor General's office.  He moved to San Francisco in 1878 and opened a studio.  Dahlgren was an active member of  the San Francisco Art Association.  He married and made his home in Oakland where he would live the rest of his life.  Primarily a landscape painter, he also worked in genre painting, portraiture, as well as a series of street scenes of San Francisco following the 1906 earthquake.  His illustration work  appeared in the Californian magazine over the years.  Due to a shaft of sunlight often found in his paintings Carl was referred to  as the "Sunshine Painter".  The Dahlgren brothers signed their paintings "Dahlgreen" when they first arrived in the United States but dropped an "E" from their signatures after a short period.  Carl died in Oakland on June 5, 1920. This painting dates to the late 1800's.
