Aben Osvald

I need to bookmark this! DK children illustration, year 1947. Aben Osvald (Oswald the Monkey) by Egon Mathiesen (1907-1976).  Naive+expressionism+apes, doesn’t get any better than that!

One thought on “Aben Osvald

  1. Hi Valeria – If you like the monkey book by Egon Mathisen you would probably also love MIS MED DE BLÅ ØJNE, a favourite when I was a kid.
    I take it you are familiar with PALLE ALENE I VERDEN – wonderful wonderful children’s book. Sort of cult, like SPØRGEJØRGEN
    From Palle Alene i Verden stems the expression for example “nu står jeg her helt palle” (=all alone, like Palle Alene i Verden.
    So it seems we have the internet back!
    Would you like the mailboxes to start functioning soon?
    Is that why Andreas asked?
    love from Bodil
