Swedish painter Bruno Liljefors, who studied at the Stockholm Royal Academy of Art, was probably the most important and most influential wildlife painter of the late 19th and early 20th century. As a child Liljefors spent his time drawing and exploring the outdoors. He studied abroad for a short time under animal painter Carl Friedrich Deiker. Liljefors was an active falconer who often drew his inspiration from observations in the wild. In his later years he also painted figures and produced some sculptures. His younger brother Ruben Matthias (1871-36) became a well-known composer in Sweden.
