Biography
Maria Röhl was born inStockholm. She was the daughter of theConsulJacob Röhl and Maria Christina Kierrman and sister ofGustafva Rohl..
She fell on hard times after the death of her parents in 1822. After her first plans to become a governess, she was educated in drawing by the professor and engraver Christian Forsell; she had already received education in art by the painter Alexander Hambré, and was now taught to make quick and realistic portrait drawings in lead and chalk.
She began to draw the friends of the Forsell family, where she lived, and soon it became fashionable in high society. She was much employed by those who couldn't pay to be painted in oil, and drew a large number of famous Swedes of the time, both aristocrats and actors. Maria Röhl did paint in oil, but the majority of her work are drawings in lead and chalk..
In 1843, Röhl was appointed court painter and between 1843–1846, she studied in Paris at the studio of Leon Cognietat the French Academy of Arts. After her return, she established her own studio at Brunkebergstorg in Stockholm.
