Michelle Facos

(b Gävle, Sept 23, 1860; d Solna, Jan 8, 1928).

Swedish painter and printmaker. He studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Stockholm from 1879 to 1882. For the next 12 years he lived abroad, travelling to Italy, Spain, France, Germany and North Africa and settling in London in 1886. During this time printmaking became his primary interest and in 1892 he joined the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in London. In 1895 he returned to Stockholm, where he initiated a printmaking course at the Royal Academy. Among his students were Carl Olof Larsson, Anders Zorn, the Swedish painter Albert Engström (1869–1940) and Ferdinand Boberg. It was largely due to his efforts that printmaking gained widespread popularity among Swedish artists in the 20th century.
