I would like to introduce you to a german childrenbook illustrator that is not too well known today, HERMANN VOGEL, 1854 – 1921. he grew up in saxony and studied at the art academy in dresden. VOGEL’s illustrations are in the tradition of german ROMANTICISM, and their best known artists – LUDWIG RICHTER, MORITZ VON SCHWIND and CARL SPITZWEG. ALBERT HURTER introduced these artists and their illustration style to the disney studio and they influenced very much the look of the first animated feature films.

Hermann Vogel is one of my very favorite illustrators! I’ve collected quite a few of his books since I first discovered him, including the 4 big albums of his b/w drawings. Thanks for sharing these.

It’s a little book (46 p.) but I found an Italian book very interesting: http://www.loscarabeo.com/libri-artistici/379-c-era-una-volta.html
