“Herr Birre och Trollen” tale, from “Bland Tomtar och Troll” illustrated by John Bauer

The little red haired troll boy is named Humpe. Bauer used him repeatedly in his art and he became almost a stand in for the artist himself.

One of John’s favourites is Humpe, a small troll with a gentle disposition and a longing for the light world of people. Humpe is almond-eyed, snub-nosed and red-haired like a little faun. He first appeared in 1912, in the fairytale Trollsonen som hade solögon och vart skogsman - a romantic saga about a troll-boy that appealed to John. John returned to Humpe in works such as the late watercolour Moderskärlek (Mother love), painted in 1917.
