Описание: This sumptuous gallery gathers breathtaking artwork from rare early editions of such popular tales as "Sleeping Beauty," "Cinderella," and "The Snow Queen." More than 180 elegant images — most in full color — capture the genius of Arthur Rackham, Gustave Dore, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Warwick Goble, Walter Crane, and others.
Описание: Readers of all ages will cherish this unique book and its splendid combination of art and literature. Eighty-six stunning images by a master of watercolor techniques depict scenes from Japanese, Bengali, and Italian folklore. Other subjects include the works of Shakespeare and Tennyson, plus familiar characters such as Cinderella and Puss in Boots.
Описание: Rooted in tales both ancient and modern, these vibrant images date from the early twentieth century's Golden Age of Illustration. Edmund Dulac, a prominent artist of the period, created them for books published between 1905 and 1928. Their moods range from the shadowy foreboding of Jane Eyre to the venturesome spirits of Treasure Island and the lighthearted fantasies of A Fairy Garland. Other featured titles include Shakespeare's The Tempest, The Arabian Nights, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. French-born Edmund Dulac arrived in London in 1904, when new advances in the printing process kindled a rage for picture books. Dulac's imaginative powers and technical skills assured the popularity of his book illustrations, many of which were sold separately as fine art paintings. After World War I, when the appetite for deluxe volumes waned, the artist turned his talents in many new directions, including portraiture, theatrical costume and set design, newspaper caricature, and stamp design. This retrospective of his early works is the only such anthology available, offering a singular tribute to an artist from a halcyon era of art inspired by literature.
Описание: One of the most influential (and most prolific) illustrators of children's books during the early twentieth century, Edmund Dulac brought countless fairy tales to life through his distinct style, subtle use of colour and fanciful compositions. This collection of 55 masterworks by that renowned illustrator includes a selection of his beguiling images for "The Sleeping Beauty," "Cinderella," "The Snow Queen," "Princess Badouro: A Tale from the Arabian Nights," "The Real Princess," "The Mermaid," and other tales.
