Theodor Kittelsen is a popular artist from Norway. He is most well-known for his nature paintings and illustrations, and he has won awards for his illustrations of fairy tales, legends, and trolls. Regardless of whether he painted a troll or a wolf, you are sure to find one of his works in your own home.
