- Full Description
This special issue features the works of just two giants of illustration: Gustaf Tenggren (63 images) and Frank Brangwyn (50 images, including a centerfold two-pager). Each artist gets a brief bio, plus there are short explanations of the works collected here. Included are Tenggren's paintings and illustrations of Grimm's fairy tales from a 1922 Swedish edition, images from the annual Bland Tomtar och Troll from 1920-23, plus some of his work from Disney's Snow White.
Brangwyn's works here include many of his Venice sketches and paintings, maritime pieces, fantastic tempera work and five magnificent murals from the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exhibition. Fine paintings are reproduced for "Work," a nearly unknown portfolio from 1914, limited to less than 100.
Wonderfully varied collection of rare work by illustrators taken from magazines and books published prior to 1923. The artists will be familiar, but you're very unlikely to have seen these images--they are culled from very obscure magazines and have never been reprinted!
