Egron Sellif Lundgren (18 December 1815, in Stockholm – 16 December 1875 in Stockholm) was a Swedish watercolor painter. He studied at the Academy of Stockholm, and afterwards in Paris under Cogniet. He sojourned in Italy, 1841–49, devoting himself to watercolors. From there he went to Spain and then to England, where he was commissioned by Queen Victoria to paint ceremonial pictures. He was sent to India during the war in 1858, the results of which expedition were a series of five hundred sketches, including numerous portraits. He was elected an associate member of the Royal Watercolour Society, London in February 1864. He later became a full member in 1867.
