Swedish visual artist and cartoonist Stig Munthe-Sandberg came from a family of musicians. Munthe-Sandberg studied at the Althin Painting School (1919-20), at the Technical School (1921-24) and then at the Konstakademien Stockholm until 1927. He also studied in Germany, Italy, France and England. He later became a teacher at the Technical and the Arts and Crafts School, and worked as an illustrator for the newspaper “Svenska Dagbladet”. Munthe-Sandberg produced figurative compositions, circus and theater designs, and landscapes, especially in charcoal and pastel. His works showed a strong connection to the French impressionists of the late 19th century, like Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas. After 1943, he focused on graphic art, mainly lithographs. Munthe-Sandberg remained one of the few artists from that era whose works are still kept in Swedish museums.
