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.

  1. Hi Nathalie. A catalogue of turmoil. The webhost was upgrading my account, giving me more system resources, but failed to inform me that nameservers needed changing. Once that was resolved, I had to find out for them (they should have known) that only they could do this with my domain, then after that there was some network problem! So several days lost. I would have been more on top of it but I’ve had a lot of work to attend to this week as well. All should be back to normal now. The host are usually pretty good once things are running properly.
