Fritz Eichenberg

Fritz Eichenberg (1901-1990), noted German-American illustrator who worked primarily in wood engraving, created a series of prints based on T. H. White’s Arthurian books, perhaps intended for an edition that never came to fruition. In addition to the three images displayed here—Merlyn and Archimedes, Wart as a hawk undergoing an ordeal, the kitchen maid and the unicorn (all of them artist-signed in pencil)—Eichenberg also depicted the boar hunt and the tale of St. Toirdealbhach.
