About the artist

John Albert Bauer (1882 - 1918) was a Swedish painter and illustrator. His works are centered on landscapes and mythology. He is popularly known for his illustrations of early editions of Bland tomtar och troll or commonly called Among Gnomes and Trolls, which is an anthology of Swedish folklore and fairy tales. He was born and raised in Jonkoping. At the age of 16, he moved to Stockholm to study at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts. As a student there, he received his first commissions to illustrate stories in books and magazines. There he met Ester Ellqvist, whom he married in 1906. During his travels in Lappland, Germany, and Italy, he was deeply exposed of the different cultures which greatly influenced his works. He painted and illustrated in a romantic nationalistic style, which was influenced by the Italian Renaissance and Sami cultures. Most of his masterpieces were watercolors or prints in monochrome or muted colors. He also used oil in painting as well as frescoes. With his illustrations and paintings, people were able to broaden their understanding and appreciation fo Swedish folklore, fairy tales and landscape. Together with his friends, Bauer were part of a generation of Swedish painters who started their careers just before the Modernism movement began to flourish. Bauer was inspired by artists such as Carl Larsson, Anders Zorn, and Bruno Lijefors, as well as Fritz Erler, Max Klinger and other German illustrators. His works were also influenced by the 14th century Renaissance. This is seen through the pictures of princes and princesses such as they had elements from Flandic tapestries. The garments of trolls were also pleated just like the draped clothing seen in antique Roman sculptures.
