Carlos Schwabe (1866-1926) was a Swiss Symbolist painter and graphic artist. He was born in Altona, Hamburg, Germany and spent most of his life in Switzerland. Schwabe was a master of the Art Nouveau style and his work was strongly influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, the Symbolist movement and the work of Gustave Moreau. Schwabe's paintings often depicted mystical and allegorical themes, with a focus on the female form. He was particularly noted for his use of colour and his ability to create dreamlike and otherworldly scenes. Some of his most famous works include 'The Death of the Grave Digger', 'The Awakening of the Elf' and 'The Rose of the Winds'. In addition to his paintings, Schwabe also created illustrations for books and magazines, as well as posters and advertisements. He was a member of several art societies and exhibited his work in major European cities, including Paris, Berlin and Vienna. Schwabe died in 1926 in Avon, France, at the age of 60. His work continues to be celebrated for its beauty, symbolism and influence on the Art Nouveau movement.
