Biographical Sketch

Gustaf Tenggren was born on November 3, 1896 in Magra in Vastra Gotaland County, Sweden. He attended the Valand School of Fine Arts in Gothenburg, Sweden beginning in 1913, and in 1917 he began illustrating Bland Tomtar Och Troll, ( Among Gnomes and Trolls ), an annual serial of fairy tales published for children. In 1920, Gustaf Tenggren came to the United States and moved first to Cleveland, Ohio, where his sister resided, before eventually moving to New York City in 1922. In 1923, Tenggren illustrated his first work for children in America, Nathaniel Hawthorne's A Wonder Book and Tanglewood Tales. From 1923 to 1939, Tenggren worked for the game company Milton Bradley. In 1936 he was hired to work as the chief illustrator on the feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs for the Walt Disney Company. Tenggren left Walt Disney Company in 1940 after having worked on other productions such as Bambi and Pinocchio and at times leading the workforce of artists that numbered up to 700.

From 1942 to 1962 he worked for Little Golden Books, illustrating such well known titles as The Poky Little Puppy , which became the single all-time best-selling hardcover children's book in English. Throughout his long career as an artist and illustrator, Tenggren illustrated dozens of books for children, including many of his own adaptations of fairy and folk tales. He passed away in 1970 at Dogfish Head in Southport, Maine.
