Wilhelm Roegge illustriert E. d. Amicis "Von den Apenninen zu den Anden"

Erschienen 1907 in Linz im
Verlag des Lehrerhausvereines Oberösterreich.
Auch hier versteht es Wilhelm Roegge
Gefühle und soziale Befindlichkeiten
meisterhaft in Tusche und Feder zu vermitteln.
Und die Bilder sind (durch seine klassische akademische
Ausbildung an der Akademie München)  "komponiert" !
Man beachte das Auge des Jungen der auf den
Halbkreis blickt, das Zentrum der Komposition.
 Published in 1907 in Linz, Austria
Publishing House of the teachers association Upper Austria.
Feelings and social sensitivities
are masterfully illustrated in pen and ink.

And the pictures are "composed" 
(Academy Munich, Germany) !
Note the eye of the boy that looks to the
center of the semicircle.

Salamander Gold

Painted in ArtRage.
As you can see in the details below I work with structures
of the layers that ArtRage offers in a wide range with his papers
and canvases. They are good enough for me to
 imitate the structures of nature.

Wilhelm Roegge illustriert Meinrad Lienerts "Schweizer Sagen und Heldengeschichten" (Teil 1)

As a schoolboy I discovered in the little library in the classroom
a very special book. It was written by Meinrad Lienert
and was full of little stories from the Swiss legends.  
Wilhelm Roegges Illustrations stimulated in me the desire  
to be able to draw also as as he. 
That was before the actual fantasy literature conquered the 
German language area. And light years before the invention of the internet ;-) !
In my previous posts, I have endeavored to show more 
about Wilhelm Roegge. Unfortunately, there is only 
little biographical report about him.
His father was a famous academic german painter 
and he had the same name.
"Wilhelm Roegge the Younger" was born on 12  June 1870 
in Munich and died 1946 in Oberaudorf/ Inn, Germany
 Student of Lindenschmit d.J. and
Karl Raupp at the Academy of Arts in Munich.
