Swedish artist (22 January 1849 – 14 May 1912)            Something of a polymath, was also a telegrapher, theosophist, painter, photographer and alchemist. August Strindberg's paintings were unique for their time, and went beyond those of his contemporaries for their radical lack of adherence to visual reality. The 117 paintings that are acknowledged as his were mostly painted within the span of a few years, and are now seen by some as among the most original works of 19th-century art.
