Nils Edvard Kreuger (11 October 1858 - 11 May 1930) was a Swedish painter.

After studying at the Perséus school of painting, Nils Kreuger came to Paris in 1881. Under the influence of the French plein air style of painting he produced landscapes and cityscapes of Paris and its region, often at dawn or dusk, in the mist, rain or snow. In 1887 he returned home to Sweden and settled in Varberg, where he from 1893 painted together with Richard Bergh and Karl Nordström.[1]
