William Andrew (Willy) Pogany (1882-1955) was born in Hungary, where he studied engineering. His success as a caricaturist led him to pursue a career in art, first in London, then in the United States. His influences were the Oriental artists and illuminated books, and most of his career was devoted to book illustration. Among his many successes were The Rubaiyat, Hungarian Fairy Book, and Gulliver's Travels. He also painted murals, created state settings, did illustrations for most of the major magazines, and exhibited widely over the course of a long career.
