Tales of the Brothers Grimm: Drawings by Natalie Frank
by Marta, Karen (Editor) with Jack Zipes, Linda Nochlin, and Claire Gilman
Bologna: Damiani, 2015. Original. Hardcover. As New. Color-illus. boards with gilt lettering and bees on darkest brown title block and spine. Color-illus. end papers. 272 pp. with color plates, bw page borders, and additional color and bw figures. Hand-written note from Elizabeth A. Sackler, on personal correspondence card, laid in. Published to coincide with the exhibition, "Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm" at The Drawin center, New York (April to June 2015) and Blanton Museum of Art, Austin (July to November 2015). For "Tales of the Brothers Grimm," 36 celebrated and lesser-known of the unsanitized fairy tales collected by the illustrious brothers were carefully chosen by artist Natalie Frank, reinterpreted in 75 gouache and chalk pastel drawings, and cast in a Surrealist dreamscape. This volume, designed by Marian Bantjes, is the largest collection of "Grimms' Fairy Tales" ever illustrated by a fine artist. Frank's irreverent palette, sophisticated use of color and inventive depiction of these dark narratives capture the original stories with a contemporary and unflinching eye. Each of the tales opens with a hand-drawn title page and is framed by a unique border; small drawings punctuate each story in the tradition of classic fairy-tale editions. The foremost Grimm scholar, Jack Zipes, introduces the book." In her note, Sackler comments on the drawings (Frank is her friend), the show at The Drawing Center, and the book.
