John Bauer - part 2

John Bauer and his wife Ester in Italy in 1908

John Albert Bauer (1882 – 1918) was a Swedish painter and illustrator. His work is concerned with landscape and mythology, but he also composed portraits. He is best known for his illustrations of early editions of Bland tomtar och troll (Among Gnomes and Trolls), an anthology of Swedish folklore and fairy tales.
