"Ingrid Vang was born in 1916 in Vejen in southern Jylland, in Denmark." She began study at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, departed, moved to Stockholm in 1942. Most of her important illustrations were created 1945 to 1952.

Per Wikipedia she married (Johan) Arne Nyman, an artist and poet whom she met at the Academy (where she started in 1935). Their son born 1940 in Stockholm is Peder Nyman at Danish Wikipedia and the Library of Congress. LCCN n78-034231 (4 records of 2 works as illustrator).

She is "Ingrid Vang Nyman" in prose at Danish Wikipedia (her native language, and at Norwegian) which says that the marriage ended after a few years (dissolved per Google Translate [GT]) and she moved with her son to Stockholm in 1943. She suffered economic and health problems [GT] and committed suicide in 1959. Her grandfather was Danish Governor [GT] Johannes Lauridsen. As determined by surviving sister Kirsten Vang Lauridsen, original illustrations for Swedish-language books are at the Royal Library in Stockholm, other works at a museum in Denmark.

She is "Nyman" at German Wikipedia which says that the marriage ended after a few years (divorce per GT) and moved with her son to Stockholm in 1943. She suffered mental health problems [GT] and committed suicide in 1959.

Norwegian Wikipedia notes that son Peder, best known for newspaper drawings, died in 2001.

She is "Ingrid Vang Nyman" at Swedish Wikipedia which says the couple moved to Stockholm in 1942 and separated in 1944. She was depressed(?).
