Ernest Fredericks (American, 1877-1927) was born in McPherson, Kansas in 1877 by the name Frederick Swedlun.  He later moved to Chicago to study art.  It was during this time he changed his name to Ernest Fredericks. He used this pseudonym because he was of Swedish origin and at the time he was living in Chicago, they were the newest immigrant group being bashed.  Fredericks later moved to Eureka Springs, Arkansas where he taught art classes in the Ozarks with his son, Glenn Swedlun.  His later paintings were signed Fred Swedlun. He died in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
