Tengelin-Winge, Hanna(Swedish, 1838-1896)
Hanna Tengelin-Winge, a Swedish painter, watercolorist and textile artist, was one of the first female artists to attend the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Inspired by such diverse forms of creative expression as children’s literature, Viking symbology and Drakslingor (ornamental motifs using animal imagery), Tengelin-Winge participated in a wide-range of artistic practices, including interior design, decoration and embroidery—she designed alter cloths for the Uppsala Cathedral. Her veneration for Swedish handicraft traditions led her, along with Sophie Adlersparre and Molly Rohtlieb, to found and serve as artistic director for the Association of Friends of Handicraft (Association Handarbetets).
