Wanda’s Dream

Wanda Gág, Charcoal Drawing, December 1921 Broom magazine.

A recent link to FITK in The Daily Koz brought a flurry of attention to this site and a Wanda Gág post. Never one to shy away from publicity, I was pleased to see that many of those who came stayed and engaged in further explorations. Far from just being a writer/illustrator of books for children, Wanda was a complicated individual who had definite leftist political leanings as well as bringing a unique psycho-sexual component to her fine art.

Both of these aspects are shown in the above illustration she made for the avant-garde magazine Broom.

Good for you! Your Wanda compilation would certainly deserve the attention.

I'm still discovering odd things she did (like this drawing.)
