Instead of sharing a fairy tale and lots of different illustrators, today I am sharing one artist who illustrated lots of different fairy tales: John Bauer.
John Bauer was a Swedish illustrator best known for depicting Swedish mythology. His paintings -mostly watercolor- have a dark, ethereal quality. His most popular illustrations are for a book called Among Gnomes and Trolls. He lived from 1882-1918 -dying tragically young along with his wife and son in a shipwreck.
