Fanny Ingeborg Matilda Brate, nee Ekbom, (26 February 1862–24 April 1940) was a Swedish painter. Fanny Brate’s paintings influenced Carl Larsson, and her work is seen as the inspiration for his watercolors of idyllic family life.
In 1885 she received a Royal Medal in recognizion of her skillful work Konstvänner which portrays Brate surrounded by a crowd of children. She is best known, however, for Namnsdag (A Day of Celebration), painted in 1902, which today hangs at the Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts.
The National Museum held a memorial exhibition of her collected works in 1943, where 126 works were displayed. She painted both in oil and watercolors. Her work has significant cultural heritage value in its depiction of Swedish nineteenth century Bourgeoisie life.
