Kay Nielsen is a boss

I've been looking at the art of Kay Nielsen a lot lately--his detailed illustrations are absolutely wonderful and bizarre. He worked mostly in watercolor with pen & ink, which is clearly one of the reasons why I love his work. Also, I love the way he draws people--very simply, with fantastic clothes. The draping of the ladies' dresses is beautiful. I think my favorite piece is the one with all the ladies walking through the forest (on the way to a dance, obviously).
