Footnotes

  • E.J. Sullivan (1869-1933) "established himself as one of the foremost illustrators of his time... he was a superb figure draughtsman... and had a strong and inventive imagination" (Simon Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists).

    The original drawings were used for the 1901 edition of John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. The etchings include three-quarter length portraits of George Bernard Shaw, and John Galsworthy, scenes from Don Quixote, figure studies (cook, a cello player, one-man band, an after-dinner speaker "the determined frothblower"), views in Normandy, and others.
