Per Lysne emigrated to Stoughton, Wisconsin from Lærdal, Sogn, Norway in 1907. He began working as a detailer of wagons in the Stoughton wagon factory. The factory was forced to close during the Depression, so Lysne began rosemaling. Lysne is often credited with the revival of rosemaling in the Norwegian-American community.
