Emma Chadwick-Lowstedt (1855-1932) was a Swedish painter who specialized in genre scenes and portraits.She was the granddaughter of Carl Theodor Löwstädt, a miniature painter and printmaker. Her father, Rudolf was a master tailor. She began her artistic education at the Technical School, then studied at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts from 1874 to 1880. In 1881, after having spent the previous summers on the French coast, she went to Paris to finish her studies at the Académie Julian with Jean Charles Cazin and Tony Robert-Fleury. She had her first showing at the Salon her first year there.
She eventually settled in at the Swedish artists' colony in Grez-sur-Loing, where she met her husband, the American painter Francis Brooks Chadwick. They married and bought an inn there in 1887, which became a popular meeting place for the expatriate artists. Five years later, they built a villa on the same property. While living there, she travelled extensively, visiting Brittany with her friend, Amanda Sidwall, and accompanying her husband on trips to Spain, North Africa, Italy, the United States and England. When an old friend from the Academy, Anders Zorn, came to visit, he remarked that she was beginning to forget how to speak Swedish.
She exhibited her work at the Palace of Fine Arts at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois and continued to participate in exhibits at the Salon until 1924. A major retrospective of her work was arranged in 1940 by Gösta Stenman and shown at his gallery.
