Jenny Nyström (1854-1946) is the Kalmar girl who went to Paris and became one of Sweden's most famous artists. The vast majority of people immediately think of elves when Jenny Nyström's name is mentioned. It was Jenny who gave us our picture of Santa Claus. But few know her artistic background, her original ambitions or what inspired her to create all the illustrations and elf portraits for which she later became best known.
During this guidance, you will get to know Jenny Nyström a little better. We talk about her upbringing, her importance to our image of Christmas and what it was like to be a woman and breadwinner in Sweden around the turn of the last century.
