Biography

Wanda Roose was born in Moscow in 1882. As Wanda grew up she showed an undeniable passion for painting, and though her family wanted to remain in Moscow, they recognized Wanda's artistic gifts and moved to Sweden, where she was able to obtain an extensive international degree.

With a recommendation from a Polish professor, Roose attended the Academi Colarossi de Paris, from 1900-1902. There she also met Danish painter Aage Valdemar Larsen Roose, and they married in 1907 in Denmark, where they had daughter Gunvor Wanda.

Her first exhibition was in Charlottenborg in 1914, and from there she continued to show, with her husband with other artists, throughout Europe, with a focus on her scenic and portraiture prints.
