HENRY MOORE
Prométhée
GOETHE
(translation by André Gide)
Jonquires, Nicaise, Paris, 1950
As in the case of Faust illustrated by Delacroix, the sculptor Henry Moore found a play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe as inspiration. The color lithographs are large and striking. Among other books by Moore are Elephant Skull with text by the artist. Other sculptors - Rodin, Laurens, Manolo and Maillol (who made his own paper) - also illustrated books.

Among contributors to the Modern Illustrated Book in Great Britain were David Hockney, whose Six Tales from the Brothers Grimm, Rake's Progress and Fourteen Poems are outstanding. Lucien Freud and Howard Hodgkin are other British artists involved in Modern Illustrated Books.
