This is from 1883.
There is a nice essay, and examples of his work at this site. There we learn:
In the late 19th century, wildlife painting emerged as a separate genre from natural history illustration, and Liljefors was one of pioneers of this new kind of art. He liked to paint animal predators....In 1893, the Swedish explorer and taxidermist Gustaf Kolthoff opened, in Stockholm, one of the world’s first natural history museums that displayed stuffed animals in a reconstructed natural habitat, backed by life-like panoramas. Called the Biologiska Museet (Biological Museum), this pioneering institution is still open to the public..... and much of the attractiveness of the displays derives from the background paintings. These were all painted by Liljefors....
I liked this site also, maybe because it backed up my own assessment above:
Bruno Liljefors ...was a lifelong hunter, which raises the dilemma of his possibly being torn between shooting his prey or sketching it. Judging from the mounted animals in his studio .... it would appear he may have done both. But humans are not the only ones who hunt. Many of Liljefors paintings feature foxes, birds, cats, and other animals hunting their prey as well .... His work is dramatic in that sense. Even now, his paintings are among the very few depicting animals of prey doing what they do best. Yet there is not the slightest hint of romanticized death or exaggerated violence. He painted in a somewhat impressionist mode but with a very nature-oriented sensibility. Their beauty in our eyes derives from the animals themselves, not from their struggle for survival.
His own struggle for survival may have been involved when "around 1900, ... he left his wife and took up with her younger sister." He painted people too, as in this social winter scene:
