I realized how many more books illustrated by WILHELM M.BUSCH I have, and decided to prepare some more chapters about this ‘illustration giant’. his artwork below is from the book ‘LIEBE IN FRANKREICH’ ( love in france ). look how effortless these sketches were ‘written down’…

as long as I can remember there was this fascination with pirates. I loved to read PETER PAN and STEVENSON’S TREASURE ISLAND, and then there were the old hollywood swashbuckler classics like CAPTAIN BLOOD, THE BLACK CORSAIR, THE BUCCANEER, THE SEA HAWK, THE BLACK SWAN and of course lately THE PIRATES OF THE CARIBEAN.
but it was not just the adventurous stories, the sword fights and buried treasures, that made it all so interesting, for me it was the world where all that took place – those huge sailing ships and the endless oceans, the huge waves and the storms.
a while ago I found more accidentally beautiful artwork that depicted this world, paintings done by MONTAGUE DAWSON and IWAN KONSTANTINOWITSCH AIWASOWSKI. and recently, with more time, I started to search more intensively through the endless world of the internet, and found hundreds of the most amazing paintings. this genre is called NAUTICAL-, MARINE- or MARITIME ART depicting the world of ships and the seas.
in a lot of cases these paintings are available without the name of the artist and the year they were painted. thats why I decided to give you just a general list of maritime artists and you can find out more about them in case you are interested.

let me quote DAVID APATOFF in his incredible blog ILLUSTRATION ART
HENRY PATRICK RALEIGH, (1880-1944), started and ended life in poverty and despair. but in between, he spent decades painting high society pictures and living the opulent life of one of the best paid illustrators in the united states.’
RALEIGH’S illustrations belong to the best I have ever seen, and it is not just the draftsmanship in his drawings, it is his amazing talent to tell us a story in these images, you know what the characters are saying and thinking! it is a rare talent that you can only find in a few artists. I am in awe.

here are a few links ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ) where you can find more information about him, as well as more artwork.

todays collection is about german illustrator WILHELM M.BUSCH, 1908 – 1987. in the past I published already 43 posts about his extraordinary work, that’s why I thought an overview over his life work might be interesting, where you can see changes in style and drawing techniques. the images in this chapter are from 2 major work-catalogues.
