English: Johannes Gezelius the Elder (1615–1690), bishop of Åbo. Original portrait, made by David Klöcker Ehresntrahl in the 17th century, is now kept in the Gripsholm castle in Sweden. This copy was made in 1839 by Johan Erik Lindh at the order of Helsinki University, which still owns it today.

Johan Erik Lindh was indeed a Swedish painter, famous for his landscape paintings. He was born on 18 December 1793 in Stockholm, Sweden and died on 8 November 1865. Lindh focused primarily on depicting the Swedish countryside, often capturing the serene beauty of rural landscapes with a keen eye for detail and atmosphere. Although not widely recognised outside Sweden, Lindh's work contributed to the development of landscape painting in his country during the 19th century. His paintings are characterised by their tranquil scenes, soft colours and meticulous attention to natural elements.
