Nils Möllerberg (1892-1954) was a Swedish sculptor, painter and graphic artist. He was the son of Carl Möllerberg, who was a fruit grower and photographer in Tomarp outside Kristianstad in southern Sweden, where Möllerberg settled back at 56 years of age. From 16 years of age he was apprenticed to senior artists in Copenhagen. He lived in Paris between 1919 and 1928 and was influenced by artists such as Aristide Maillol and Auguste Rodin, whose influence is particularly evident in his female figures.
