lost Scandinavian artist

When I was a kid I really liked a particular illustrator who painted? drew? these pastel-colored, rather depressing, and often romantic pictures, many of which were illustrations of the Anderson sorts of fairy tales, e.g. The Snow Queen, or Hansel & Gretel.

I'm 99% sure she was Scandinavian, and she may have died in the 1950s or so.
The people in her pictures always had those creepy blank Lil Orphan Annie eyes. Does anyone have any clue who that was? I've been googling away with no results, but I might be remembering things all wrong.
