Emblom was Swedish and was born in Stockholm. Despite his Swedish background, Emblom is correctly described as a "Balholm-painter".
We know that Emblom stayed in Balestrand for several long periods. He became a good friend of Sigurd Kvikne(the elder), and the rest of the Kvikne family called him Uncle Einar.
He stayed in Balestrand during the summer and in Switzerland during the winter, where he died, only 36 years old.Read More
