Johan August Malmström, 1829 to 1901, was a Swedish painter known for his country motives often featuring children and on occasion fairies. His most widely recognized work is Grindslanten featuring a typical scene from 19th century Sweden. Influenced by the national romanticism of Gothicismus, he also collected motives from Norse mythology. He made illustrations for publications of both Frithiofs saga and The Tales of Ensign Stål. His artistic breakthrough came after his return to Sweden in 1866 he exhibited five works at the Scandinavian Industrial and Art Exhibition of 1866 in Stockholm. Subsequently, he was appointed professor of the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm in 1867 where he taught until 1894. He also served as manager of the same institution from 1887 to 1893. Upon his death, he was buried in the cemetery at Solna Church in Solna kyrkogård near Stockholm. He bequeathed some 650 watercolors, drawings and 26 sketchbooks to the Nordic Museum on Djurgården
