A few more days to enjoy the exhibition of Harry Clarke’s illustrations for Hans Christian Andersen’s “Fairy Tales” special edition of 1916 at the National Gallery of Ireland. Irish Artist Harry Clarke’s imaginative illustrations are a perfect match for Andersen’s ingenious stories. Nevertheless, they are unique masterworks in their own right. Each of the 10 illustrations eschews Art Nouveau through their richly coloured and ultra-detailed drawings. This makes the exhibition a second to none opportunity to closely appreciate such inventive watercolours, otherwise, partially lost during the printing processes.

not to mention the link being wrong...
Well, I like Harry Clarke anyway! He's one of those lesser known illustrators from the golden age. I'm sitting looking at my copy of Poe's 'Tales of Mystery and Imagination' and just thinking how like Beardsley or Osman Spare some of his work is.
Great blog with HI RES SCANS
Thanks Poshspice. I thought Harry Clarke could INSPIRE a few of the illustrators on the site. Great selection of images and link to Aubrey Beardsley work.
Thanks steveOBHave, but the link seems to be working fine for me.
That's because I fixed it. You left out the "g".

Ah! Thank you thank you thank you Poshspice for the highres link! I had once rented a book with the complete collected works of Poe, and his illustrations struck me most (there were some others too, but he captured the essence best). Since then, I've been trying to find more of his work but I hadn't come across this. I love it all! The Monos & Una piece is quite stunning.
