Erik Werenskiold grew up in Kongsvinger, and started his studies in 1872. Based on advice from the painter Adolph Tidemand, he attended a college for painters, and in the autumn of 1875 he went to Münich where he stayed for four years. Inspired by French paintings of nature and the naturalist movement, Werenskiold moved to Paris in 1881 to continue his studies.

In 1883 Werenskiold returned to Norway. He made several paintings of peasants in landscapes, as well as portraits of celebrities like Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson and Henrik Ibsen. Illustrations for Norwegian fairy tales had interested him since his time in Munich, and he now got the opportunity to illustrate Norwegian fairy tales together with Theodor Kittelsen.
