Vogger das Oboe Downy – part of the automaton series in the collection A Winter with Isidore – by Philomena Primrose.
The A Winter with Isidore collection is a project based on taking original pen and ink artwork and blending it with various pieces from the 18th century art collections of artist Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard, better known by his pseudonym J.J. Grandville. The collection blends an artist’s current artwork with pieces of Grandville’s older, original artwork to further his ideas of surrealist designs to present to the current world. Many artists see Grandville’s work often, but never know it was his. Our book is an attempt to bring a modern spotlight to an incredible artist who quite a few of us pen/surreal artists saw growing up but didn’t know by name.
