In 1900, Nordfeldt went to France and remained there to study and teach. He attended the Academié Julian in 1900 as a pupil of Jean Paul Laurens, then went to London to study etching and woodblock cutting as a pupil of Frank M. Fletcher. He moved back and forth between the U.S. and Europe, but after WWI, returned to America. He spent much of his later life Santa Fe and Kansas. Provenance: From the estate of Arthur N.
