Maurice Greiffenhagen

Original Art for H. Rider Haggard/ and Andrew Lang’s ‘The World’s Desire’, 1890

Art  9 1/2” x 6”; with frame 15” x 11


Original gouache on board, framed.  Greiffenhagen is a Royal Academy painter with works in the Tate Gallery, British Museum, etc. His friendship with H Rider Haggard  led to him illustrating the author's popular adventure books, starting with an edition of She in 1889 - though Greiffenhagen apparently "disliked doing black-and-white work"   Greiffenhagen's 1891 painting, An Idyll, inspire H Lawrence’s novel  The White Peacock. The painting had "a profound effect" on the author, who wrote:  As for Greiffenhagen's 'Idyll', it moves me almost as if I were in love myself. Under its intoxication, I have flirted madly this Christmas.
