Per Ekstrom (1844-1935) was a Swedish landscape painter. He studied at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm. As he was inspired by Frnch school, mainly by Corot, in 1876, he went Paris, France, where he lived until 1890. His debut took place at the Paris Salon in 1878. In 1910 he moved back to Sweden and lived in Stockholm. Because of his way of painting, his preference to the sun and the air, he was often called "The sun painter".
