Ehrensvärd was born in Stockholm, and died in Örebro. Though active as a naval officer during his entire life, he is mostly remembered for the burlesque caricatures of often famous people from his era with which he decorated his letters.

In 1790, he was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
