Description
Inspired by works of the great early 20th-century children’s book illustrators, such as Arthur Rackham, Kay Nielsen and Edmund Dulac, contemporary artist William Stout created a series of paintings depicting characters from popular children’s stories and folktales.

One of the characters from Stout’s “Wizard of Oz” series is the Scarecrow who Stout portrays in the pose of Auguste Rodin’s “Thinker.” The image brings to mind the Scarecrow’s wish for a brain so that he could “think of things I never thought before.”
