Harry Clarke Scraps








Harry Clarke has been a reasonable regular feature on this blog in the past. I'm much more partial to his intricate black and white work than the coloured stuff really but these three detached pages which I assume are from his illustrations for Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales (1916) were in a recently acquired batch of bits and pieces and they have a certain something. I love the b/w background to the 'Emperor's New Clothes' illustration in particular.
