Carlos Schwabe (1877 - 1927) was a Swiss-German Symbolist painter.

Schwabe was born in Altona, Holstein, and moved to Geneva, Switzerland at an early age. After studying art in Geneva, he moved to Paris, where he began moving in Symbolist circles. His paintings typically featured mythological and allegorical figures; as an essentially literary artist, he was much in demand as a book illustrator. He illustrated Le rêve by Emile Zola, Charles Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal, Maurice Maeterlinck's Pelléas et Mélisande, and Albert Samain's Jardin de l'infante. Schwabe lived in France for the rest of his life and died outside Paris in 1927. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Schwabe [Mar 2006]
