Gudmund (Gumme) Åkermark was a Swedish farmer and painter born in 1847. He was the son of the wholesaler Gudmund Åkermark and Elvira Wimnell and, from 1887 married Maria Ulrika Eleonora Wikland. After studying at Gothenburg Business School and the Chalmers Institute in Gothenburg, he continued his studies at an agricultural school. He worked for several years as a farmer and leased various properties. He moved to Karlstad in 1893, where he continued to work as a portrait and landscape painter. Among his more famous works are the portraits of Bishop Claes Herman Rundgren and his wife Charlotte and the Director-General of the Royal Swedish Rail Agency Mauritz Sahlin. Åkermark is represented at Gothenburg City Museum, Värmland Museum, Nordiska museet among others. In this painting from 1890, we can see his talent for painting horses and landscapes; it is painted with great attention to detail with bright and clear colours.
