Eugène Jansson, 1862-1915, was a Swedish artist.

He produced a number of paintings of male figures.

He was supported by King Olaf II and Ernest Thiel, a banker.

In Sandhamn, in 1903, Eugène and his brother Adrian regularly promenaded with their younger, male, live-in companions. (Jansson, Eugène Frederik)
