These amazing , expressive illustrations are by Fritz Eichenberg, a German-American illustrator. My father in law found two of the books he illustrated at garage sales: Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. Eichenberg's family was persecuted by the Nazi's(they were Jewish)and they fled to New York City, where Eichenberg spent most of his life. I'm totally enthralled by these amazing images and I'm surprised he's not very well known, every piece is amazing.
