a while ago I posted some woodcuts of the german painter and etcher ADRIAN LUDWIG RICHTER, 1803 – 1884. he was very popular in his lifetime and is probably the most typical german illustrator of the romantic era. here now some of his paintings. you might notice how much his work influenced the art directors and background artists of the early disney films but as well later the style of SLEEPING BEAUTY.

Love seeing original sources of inspiration. The gnarly tree roots remind me of classic Disney.
