Carl Henrik Jonnevold was born in Norway in 1856. He came to America during the 1880s. While still in his twenties, he painted in the Northwest, but in his thirties, moved south to San Francisco where he established a studio near 16th and California Streets which he maintained for years.

He lived in Paris (and Munich) in the first decade of the 20th century. In Paris, he continued his course of self-education by devoting his time to studying works in the museums and galleries. His paintings thereafter took on aspects of 19th-century French genre and landscape painting, a style suited to Jonnevold's representational approach to landscape. He was primarily a painter of the California landscape, with special emphasis on marine subjects (waves breaking on a rocky shore) and mountain vistas.
