Theodor Kittelsen  1857 – 1914
Say “troll,” and the image that comes to mind was probably influenced by the art of Theodor Kittelsen. Kittelsen was a Norwegian artist who found the scenery of his homeland “mysterious, romantic, and magnificent.” He incorporated his realistic depictions of the natural world with his imaginative world of trolls and other creatures of Norwegian folklore. Kittelsen left a legacy of illustrations that still shape our images of mythological creatures and inspire artists today.
