John Bauer

John Bauer is a 19th century Swedish painter/illustrator. His work is very detail oriented and was heavily influenced by the works of 14th century painters.
His more famous works deal with fairy tales and mythology.
Here's a pretty memorable quote from him:
"I notice more and more, that it is from the oldest and most primitive artists that one must learn to become an artist oneself".
