Сказка о золотом петушке

The tale of the golden cockerel

210 x 150 mm. 16 pages 

Edition: 12. Copy nr. 5/12.






The tale of the golden cockerel is one of the most loved fairy-tales in verses by the great Russian poet and writer Aleksandr Pushkin. The best known illustrations are the chromolithographs in the Russian Art Nouveau style Ivan Bilibin (1876-1942) designed for the 1910 edition. In his illustrations Goppe does not use elements of the classical Russian imagery. His stencils and etchings are all colourful but quite loosely constructed and freely dispatched over the pages.
