Art & Fable Jigsaw - East of the Sun, West of the Moon
East of the Sun. West of the Moon, by Kay Nielsen. Deluxe 500 piece puzzle with 'velvet-touch' surface by Art & Fable.
Art & Fable aim to expand the audience of hard-working artists and to bring attention to the beautiful illustrations and stories of forgotten fables. Their approach towards accomplishing this goal, was to create premium quality jigsaw puzzles while simultaneously contributing to charity.
Most notable in Kay Nielsen’s body of work was his illustrations for East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Our 500-pc puzzle features illustrations from 2 pages of this book.
Kay Nielsen (1886 - 1957) was a key contributor during the “Golden Age of Illustration” in the early 20th century. Most notable in Nielsen’s body of work was his illustrations for a publication called East of the Sun and West of the Moon, a compendium of fifteen fairy tales gathered by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Engebretsen Moe, two Norwegian folklorists.
Nielsen provided twenty-five colour plates in his characteristic 4-color process as well as monotone images to populate with witches, heroes, and princesses. The illustrations carry a “freshness and fullness” as described by Jacob Grimm, which Art & Fable has chosen a select few to bring to you in puzzle form. The Danish illustrator is also known for his collaborations with Disney, providing the company with sketches for Fantasia and concept paintings for The Little Mermaid.
