Johan Philip Korn
Korn was born at Uddevalla in Västra Götaland County, Sweden. He was the son of Filip Ludvig Korn (1698-1741) and Maria Elfwing (1708-1742). He first began his career as a decorative painter. He was a student of artist Johan Sevenbom (1721-1784). After further studies he changed to landscape painting in the Rococo style of French artist François Boucher (1703–1770).
In 1759, Korn became master of the Stockholm Painting Office (Stockholms målarämbete) and held this position until his death. Korn became a member (agré) at the Swedish Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1777.
