Willy Pogany – Illustrated Book Checklist

Last Updated on

William Andrew Pogany (August 24, 1882 – July 30, 1955) was a prolific Hungarian illustrator of children’s and other books. His contemporaries include Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, W. Heath Robinson, Margaret Tarrant, Charles Robinson, Anne Anderson, Enerst H. Shepard and N.C. Wyeth.

He is best known for his pen and ink drawings of myths and fables. A large portion of Pogany’s work is described as Art Nouveau. Pogany’s artistic style is heavily fairy-tale orientated and often feature motifs of mythical animals such as nymphs and pixies. He paid great attention to botanical details. He used dreamy and warm pastel scenes with watercolors, oil paintings, and especially pen and ink. Painstakingly detailed and confident, Pogany’s pen and ink pieces portray the true extent of his talent.
