Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000)
Illustration from The Tuning Fork
Edward Gorey (1925–2000) created altogether new and sometimes playfully sinister characters. Amazing and wonderful in their sardonic merriment, his drawings and stories have a special genius that resides in the effect of what is left unseen and unwritten. The girl in this illustration has a lot to shout about to her sea creature friend.
