Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gustaf Adolf Tenggren (November 3, 1896 - April 9, 1970) was a Swedish-American illustrator. He is known for his Arthur Rackham-influenced fairy-tale style and use of silhouetted figures with caricatured faces. Tenggren was a chief illustrator for The Walt Disney Company in the late 1930s, in what has been called the Golden Age of American animation, when animated feature films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, Bambi and Pinocchio were produced. Gustaf Tenggren was born in 1896 in Magra Parish, south of Alings s, in V stra G taland County, Sweden. In 1913 he received a scholarship to study painting at Valand, the art school in Gothenburg, Sweden. Tenggren's early schooling and artistic influences were solidly grounded in Scandinavian techniques, motifs and myths; he worked with illustrating in the popular Swedish folklore and fairy tales annual Bland Tomtar och Troll ("Among Elves and Trolls"), where he succeeded illustrator John Bauer.show more
