Borg worked as a seaman and studied art in London before emigrating to New York City in 1902. He moved to California in 1903 and through the patronage of Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, was able to return to Europe for further study in Paris and Rome. Upon his return he taught at the California Art Institute in Los Angeles, and from 1918 to 1924 lived in Santa Barbara where he taught at the School of Arts. The interval years 1924 to 1935 were spent traveling to San Francisco, Los Angeles and the Grand Canyon. The subjects of his paintings included Hopi and Navajo Indians, cowboys, historical scenes, and California landscapes, seascapes and missions. He made three trips to Sweden in the 1930s, and when war broke out in Europe he was forced to remain there for the duration of the war. While in Sweden he had considerable fame and financial success in selling his paintings of Indians and desert scenes to art collectors. After World War II ended, he returned to Santa Barbara where he died on May 8, 1947. Borg was a member of the California Art Club, Laguna Beach Art Association, California Society of Etchers, Salmagundi Club, New York; Association of the National Academy of Design, New York City; California Watercolor Society, California Printmakers, and Painters of the West. He received many awards from around the world for his artistic talent. His works are held in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Seattle Art Museum, Library of Congress, University of California at Berkeley Museum and the Los Angeles Public Library, to name a few. His own biography was published in Sweden."

            Title is Desert Landscape. 13" by 14" framed. Carl Oscar Borg (1879 - 1947) was active/lived in California / Sweden. Carl Borg is known for Western, Indian genre, and landscape painting. Known for Southwest Indian portraits in various mediums including oil, watercolor, etchings, and woodblock, Carl Oscar Borg was born in Dais-Grinstad, Sweden. His family was poor, and he was largely self-taught. He showed early art talent, and as a child copied pictures from books. At age 15, he apprenticed to a house painter, and at age 20, moved to London and assisted portrait and marine artist George Johansen. In 1901, he arrived in San Francisco from Sweden, having jumped ship as a seaman on the "S.S. Arizonan." He walked the rail track to Los Angeles, and learned painting techniques from William Wendt, well-known landscape artist. Sponsored by Phoebe Hearst, mother of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, Borg studied art in Paris and Rome, and with Hearst's encouragement, also painted Indian portraits. He then taught at the California Art Institute in Los Angeles, spent six months in Honduras, and from 1918-24, was an instructor at the School of Arts in Santa Barbara. From 1924-1935, he was in California and Arizona doing commissioned paintings of Southwest Indian tribal ceremonies for Hearst and also did Grand Canyon landscapes. He traveled in the country when war broke out and was forced to spend World War II in Sweden where his desert and Indian portraits became much sought after. After the war, he returned to Santa Barbara and died there on May 8, 1947.

At age 15, he apprenticed to a house painter, and at age 20, moved to London and assisted portrait and marine artist George Johansen. In 1901, he arrived in San Francisco from Sweden, having jumped ship as a seaman on the "S.S. Arizonan." He walked the rail track to Los Angeles, and learned painting techniques from William Wendt, well-known landscape artist. Sponsored by Phoebe Hearst, mother of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, Borg studied art in Paris and Rome, and with Hearst's encouragement, also painted Indian portraits. He then taught at the California Art Institute in Los Angeles, spent six months in Honduras, and from 1918-24, was an instructor at the School of Arts in Santa Barbara. From 1924-1935, he was in California and Arizona doing commissioned paintings of Southwest Indian tribal ceremonies for Hearst and also did Grand Canyon landscapes. He traveled in the country when war broke out and was forced to spend World War II in Sweden where his desert and Indian portraits became much sought after. After the war, he returned to Santa Barbara and died there on May 8, 1947. One of his paintings of the Grand Canyon is in the collection of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, from Arizona.
