Else Wenz-Viëtor

Else Wenz-Viëtor (1882-1973) was probably the best known children’s book illustrator in 1920s and 1930s Germany. She was born in Sorau, now in western Poland, and it was from her grandfather that she acquired her love of plants and animals which would become favorite themes in her pictures. In 1903, she illustrated the first of more than 150 books. She also worked as a freelance artist in the interior design industry.
