Swedish Isaac Grünewald was a painter, graphic artist and stage designer, who studied in Stockholm and Paris. After his return to Sweden, he became known for pioneering stage sets for the Stockholm Opera, also creating more stage sets for the operas in Paris and Copenhagen. He was a highly productive painter as well as a writer and public speaker. During his lifetime he was one of the most controversial Swedish artists, who was provocative in his colorful, expressionistic images, and was confrontational and quick-witted. The press criticized him constantly as an imitator of Matisse, but the audience loved him. In 1946, he and his second wife Märta Grundell were killed in a plane crash near Oslo.
