I came across this picture. It is from the cover of a book of
Grimm's Fairy Tales, illustrated by
To me this is the very epitome of fairy, magical pictures.
I wish I could draw and paint like this.. She illustrated another Fairytale book but the picture I found was too small to reproduce. This book was published in the 50's. I've tried to find out a bit more about her. She is/was English and that's about all I know. I do know a very few copies of her books are being sold on ebay and in some collector book shops at very expensive prices!
I find it sad that such a beautiful illustrator as Doreen is not remembered more.
If anyone has any more info, I'd be very glad to hear it.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.
