Olaf August Andreas Jernberg was born in Düsseldorf, the son of the Swedish genre painter August Jernberg (1826–1896). Like his father, he attended the Düsseldorf Academy, where he studied landscape painting from 1872 to 1879 under Eugene Gustav Ducker (born 1841). Jernberg went to Paris in 1880 and was influenced by the Barbizon artists, who were noted for their generally unidealized representations of peasant life painted directly from nature. Jernberg returned to Düsseldorf in 1882 and began to produce the coastal views of Holland, Belgium, and the Baltic Sea for which he is best remembered. Jernberg taught landscape painting at the fine arts academy in Königsberg from 1901 to 1918, and from 1918 until his death he was a professor at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. He exhibited frequently throughout Europe and Germany, and won a succession of medals in London, Berlin, and Munich between 1878 and 1892.
