Gulbrand Sether (1869-1941) was born in Norway. After studying art in Norway with the Norwegian city and landscape painter, Fritz Thaulow, he emigrated to the US in 1893. He settled in Chicago’s Humboldt Park in 1900 and working in his own studio he devoted himself to artistic pursuits. Sether exhibited at the Norse-American Centennial Art Exhibition in 1925 held at the Minnesota State Fair and at the Chicago Norske Klub’s Annual Norwegian Art Exhibits which started in December 1920. He also showed at an exhibition called “The Divided Heart: Scandinavian Immigrant Artists 1850-1950,” curated by the University of Minnesota in 1982. His paintings were also shown in the exhibit, “Norway in America,” sponsored by Vesterheim in Norway in 1989. The Luther College Fine Arts Collection includes one work by Sether, a snow scene, possibly a landscape of northern Norway. His work is included in the Inventory of American Paintings by the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution. Shown is an oil on canvas mounted on board signed in the lower left corner, “Gulbrand Sether.”
