Carl Fredrik held his first exhibition in Paris in 1952. He returned to Sweden and studied from 1952 to 1955 at the Art Academy of Stockholm.
A long period of study tours all over Europe then followed. For a few years Carl Fredrik held a chair at the Stockholm Art Academy, which he finally left to settle down in Bussigy in Switzerland in 1969.
