After initial training received at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, August Hagborg came to Paris in 1875 to complete his training. He maintained a studio for most of his career, and continuously exhibited at the Salons between 1876 and 1909.
An Important figure in the naturalistic movement at the turn of the century, often close to artists such as Jules Breton and Jules Bastien-Lepage, he often depicted scenes inspired by coastal Normandy.
August Hagborg had an enormous success with his painting describing the fisher population at the north coast of France.
Hagborgs paintings from his period in Paris had been composed in his atelier after studies done in Bretagne and the channel coast.
