Context
Sprinchorn, who was born in Broby, Sweden, defied artistic convention of his time by fully immersing himself in his Maine subject matter. For over ten years he lived the hardscrabble life of a Maine backwoodsman in a cabin on Shin Pond, at that time the last outpost of human civilization before entering the vast Katahdin wilderness, joining the rugged group of hunters and men who worked in the logging industry.

Featured in “Maine and American Art: Farnsworth Art Museum” with thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation and Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
