Willy Pogány’s Parsifal


Bewilderèd Stood Parsifal.

One of a set of illustrations by Willy Pogány (1882–1955) for Parsifal, or the Legend of the Holy Grail retold from Ancient Sources by TW Rolleston (1912) at the Camelot Project. Lots of other classic illustrators represented there including some I hadn’t come across before. Rolleston’s book featured many colour plates but I tend to prefer Pogány’s very fine line drawings for this particular work. The indefatigable Bud Plant has a two-part Pogány biography which shows the artist’s versatility.
