a while ago I posted illustrations of italian illustrator SEVERINO BARALDI. here is more of his work, a part of illustrations he did for the 1001 ARABIAN NIGHTS tales. apparently BARALDI likes the work of swedish-american illustrator GUSTAF TENGGREN ( 1896 – 1970 ), because he is referring to his work. I start this time with a beautiful ‘harem’ painting from the CONTINENTAL SCHOOL late 19th century.
