Edward Julius Detmold

One of my favorite haunts is the Metropolitan Museum. Always a new discovery. I was happy to see that among the more recent acquisitions are some beautiful watercolor paintings by one of the all time great illustrators,Edward Julius Detmold.

Here is one created for “The First Voyage of Sinbad”. The photo does not do the painting justice. It is wonderful to behold.

Try to see it while it is still on view if you can.
