Magical is the right word! It reminds me of those fun kids art days - painting black over wax and scratching to reveal the colour underneath
yes, très magique "Le vol du cigne!"
Lovely. My daughter's just started learning to play the Swan music from Swan Lake on the piano and it makes me stop whatever I'm doing and listen withe 'goose' bumps every time... they are magical indeed :) K
we've discovered him by chance a long time ago and have gathered many of his books ever since. beautiful artwork!
It does look like a hidden gem, and reminds me for some reason of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans.
Great detail on the swan beaks, very beautiful woodcut.
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a message and brighten up my day. Merci!
