Adventurous Book

Willy Pogany had a style that seemed to oscillate between each adventurous book that he illustrated —the same basic style, but on slightly different frequencies — always with classical composition and graphic impact. So many of his books were wonders to behold.

The book below has a number of pen & ink illustrations, but here are the color plates.

Willy Pogany
The Adventures of Odysseus and the Tale of Troy — 1918

The Judgement of Paris

The Fair Helen

Achilles Victorious

The Princess Threw the Ball

The Sorrowing Odysseus


The Sirens

Penelope Unravelling the Web

There's some very bold use of negative space!
