Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“There is a renewed confidence, a delicacy of vision in these pictures, which is surprising and refreshing for those familiar with the sophisticated color palette for which Rackham was famed at the time. Not, of course, that Rackham was in any sense new to the use of silhouettes, but [Sleeping Beauty] is the first from his pen to depend entirely upon this interesting and difficult technique. His simple forms are often inventive, imaginative, amusing and tell their stories well. But it is in the more sophisticated silhouettes, in which he combines texture and reversals …. that Rackham’s ingenuity is fully expressed.
 
Fred Getting, Arthur Rackham, 1975
