Willy Pogany – Parsifal Music Sheet 1920

pogany-parsifal04After a few years of hiatus, busy with work and frankly being very lazy, I’m finally back with some updates. Here are the illustrations from Parsifal‘s sheet music designed and illustrated by Willy Pogany in 1920. For those who are familiar with Pogany’s work, it’s quite different from the Wagner’s trilogy. Pogany designed and illustrated from 1911-1913 in book form, considered by many his masterpiece and one of the highlight of the Golden Age of illustration. This is a small booklet containing 12 fully illustrated pages, probably privately commissioned. The illustrations are up to the standard he did for his earlier Parsifal, but the ornaments and designs are in color instead of the B/W or gray tone in his previous book . It is quite superb and vibrant. The scans doesn’t do justice to the illustrations, especially in this case. Enjoy like usual.
