The Wonderful Book Illustrations and Art of Willy Pogany

Willy Pogany (1882 - 1955) Versatile stylist, especially of historical or exotic pieces. Hungarian-born. Whether illustrating on Wagner or Vikings, Swimsuit Sirens or Shakespeare, Djer Kiss ads or gigantic murals, his work was inventive, evolving, and in styles that made one think he was several artists in one. Wrote instruction books on: oils, watercolors, and drawing, the last of which is again in print.
