Arvid Frederick Nyholm (1866-1927) was a Swedish-American artist, known primarily as a portrait and landscape. Anders Zorn, his former teacher in Sweden, often turned portrait commissions his way. He secured commissions for the portrait of Minnesota governor Adolph Olson Eberhart (1914) hanging in the Minnesota State Capitol building, and of Swedish-born engineer, John Ericsson, now in the National Portrait Gallery, Washington D.C.
His works were shown in numerous other museums and galleries, mostly in the Chicago area. His painting, “The Evening Circle” won first prize at the exhibition of Swedish-American artists in Chicago in 1912. He exhibited in Sweden at the 1920 Swedish-American exhibition in Stockholm and the Gothenburg exhibition of 1923. He received many awards and honors during the course of his career including the Municipal Art League Portrait Prize in 1915 and 1924, the Chicago Popular Prize in 1919, the Popular Prize at the Swedish American Art Association in 1919 and the Chicago Galleries Association in 1927.
