Severin Nilsson (1846-1918), was born in Asige in Halland, he was a painter, draftsman and photographer. He was educated at the Academy of Fine Arts 1865-1871 and then studied further with Léon Bonnat in Paris for three years. After his academy studies, he mainly painted portraits, then his motifs were landscapes and history and genre paintings, often depicting children and adults performing various tasks. He participated in several exhibitions and was a member of the Artists' Club in Stockholm and the Swedish Artists' Association. He was interested in the development of photography and was one of the first Swedish documentary photographers with an imprint in the realist tradition. Inspired by Artur Hazelius, he made photographic studies of folk life, especially in his home village of Asige in Halland. Severin Nilsson can be considered to have been productive and left behind works of varying quality. He is represented at the National Museum in Stockholm and at several regional museums.

In this beautiful painting, he depicts a girl by the fruit tree. She's in the process of satisfying herself with the appetizing fruit found in the tree. The girl's determination in the search for the perfect fruit goes through the "box". The painting is extraordinarily finely captured in the reproduction of the colors of the greenery and the tones of the sky.
