Artist Biography

Axel Herman Haig (1835-1921) was a painter, etcher, illustrator and architect born in Katthamra on the island of Gotland, Sweden. After studying naval architecture and shipbuilding in Karlskrona, in 1856 he moved to Glasgow, Scotland to continue his training. He subsequently moved to London, where he remained for a number of years before settling in Haslemere, Surrey. Haig was elected RE in 1881 and also showed at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, Dowdeswell's, Dudley Gallery, Fine Art Society, Walker Art Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, Royal Society of British Artists and Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours. However, he continued to pay regular visits to Sweden and was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy.
