Blommér were one among the Swedish artists who in the mid 1800's wanted to create a national Swedish art. He incorporated themes from Norse mythology and folklore. In 1847 he traveled to Paris via Germany. In Germany he was inspired by the German painter Moritz von Schwind, whose images often depicted fairies and other nature spirits. In Ängsälvor Blommér depicted fairies dancing in a meadow in the twilight. In the background of the romantic landscape glimpses of Gripsholm Castle can be seen.

The painting, which was created in Paris in 1850, was meant to be part of a series of four paintings, each painting would symbolize a season. Ängsälvor represented spring. After having spent some years in Paris, Blommér traveled on to Italy where he died of pneumonia in 1853, barely 37 years old.

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 100 years or fewer.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1926.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
