artist biography
Inger Birgitta Liljebladh was born 11 November 1924 in Gothenburg. She was a Swedish painter and print maker.

Liljebladh studied at the Slöjdföreningens skola (School of the Crafts Association) and the Konstakademin (Academy of Fine Arts) in Stockholm. After graduating she took several study tours to France, Italy, England and Yugoslavia. She initially made her exhibition debut as a print maker. In 1954 she got her public break-through with her own exhibition at Galleri Gummesons in Stockholm. After this exhibition she moved galleries to Färg & Form, where she stayed until they closed in the beginning of the 21st century. As a painter, Liljebladh is best represented  for eruptive expressionism with highly motivated colour in the works. She painted landscapes, flowers and faces related to the Swedish West Coast colourist tradition.

Liljebladh is represented in public collections including aat the Modern Museet in Stockholm, the Gothenburg Museum of Art and the museums in Jönköping and Linköping. She exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1982.
The same year Liljebladh was elected as a member of the Konstakademin.

She passed away on 24 September, 2014 in Gothenburg.
