Louis-Maurice Boutet de Monvel was a famous illustrator of children’s books. That’s the title page to his first book, (trans.) Old Songs and Rounds for Small Children.
From that infallible source (citations removed):
In 1895, however, he published an illustrated children’s history of Joan of Arc which has been regarded as his masterpiece. Working epic scenes in a muted palette that he described as “It’s not color, really, it is the impression, the suggestion of color”, he conveyed an emotional spirituality despite his disappointment with reproduction technology. The book gained esteem although he was neither a writer nor a historian. It was republished in 1973 and 1980.
It is now available in paperback and the reviews look good.
Louis-Maurice Boutet de Monvel died on this date in 1913.
