Born in Sweden, Sprinchorn came to New York City at age sixteen. He studied and worked with Robert Henri for a decade at the Art Students League. A longtime friend of Maine-born painter Marsden Hartley, Sprinchorn first visited Northern Maine in 1919 and returned to spend much of his time in the Patten/Shin Pond area between 1937 and 1952. Ill health forced his departure in 1952; he lived in Selkirk, New York, until his death in 1971.
Mount Chase, depicted here, sits to the northeast of Mount Katahdin and Baxter State Park. It is the nearest major peak to the town of Patten, where Sprinchorn painted for much of his life.
