In a Journey through time in illustrations Pippa Rossi explores artworks from the past. As a contemporary coloring book artist I have an interest in the works of other artists.
Rodolphe Bresdin, 1832-1885, was one of the great 19th century grafical artists. Many art historians place his work on the same level as Rembrandt and Piranesi. Baudelaire, Huysmans, Mallarmé and Odilon Redon (who was his pupil), admired his work.
