severino baraldi 3

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.

hard to see the differences between Tengreen and Baraldi.the second one is “copying “the first.I think the colors of Tengreen are softer and warmer.

‘Referring to Tenggren is one way of putting it. Overall I’d have to say Baraldi’s compositions and sense of movement sells his images to me more.

I can see a lot of Edmund Dulac in there also. More so in Tenggren than Baraldi, but of course they both owe him a stylistic debt.

Dear Hans,

I have the Arabian Nights book with Barladi’s illustrations. It was my Mother’s and she gave it to me when I was a child, and I always loved the pictures in it. I really like your blog, you always post very interesting and inspirational art work. I also have your book ‘Dream Worlds.’ It is very enjoyable. Thank you, Hannah.

I personally like Barladi’s posing, but clearly you can see Tenggren’s overall influence.
Thank you for posting, it is always a treat to read your blog. BTW, I often use your book when I talk to may students about composition. Thanks!
