An Exquisite Vision: The Art of Lisbeth Zwerger
Lisbeth Zwerger is one of the foremost illustrators working today. In 1990, at the age of thirty-six, she received the Hans Christian Andersen Medal—the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for children’s literature. Her range of subject is remarkable, encompassing the Brothers Grimm, O. Henry, Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, and L. Frank Baum. Zwerger’s artistic vision is informed by watercolors executed with a delicacy that nevertheless possess an assurance of substance.
This exhibition was made possible with the generous support of Helen and Peter Bing.
