Overview


Along with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, Kay (pronounced "kigh") Nielsen was one of a triumvirate of great artists from the golden age of illustration. Known for his soft yet ornate pastels and a splendid use of various design elements, the Danish-American artist became famous for his memorable illustrations of stories by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, as well as the Nordic fables recounted in East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon and the tales collected in In Powder and Crinoline.
This enchanting compilation of 59 full-color illustrations draws upon Nielsen's images from scores of beloved tales, from the nasty characters in "Rumpelstiltskin" to the mysterious and magical figures in "The Blue Belt," "The Hardy Tin Soldier," "The Nightingale," "The Real Princess," "Hansel and Gretel," "Snowdrop," and many more.
Certain to delight fans of fairy tales, this dazzling collection will also thrill lovers of fine art, as well as Nielsen admirers.

Never has Any Illustrator captured My Breath like this gentle Soul's Works.This has All the "Plates" from the book,"East of the Sun and West of the Moon".
