Posted on November 18, 2010


Here are 4 ORIGINAL WATERCOLOURS attributed to one of the great masters of Fairy Tales illustration NADIR QUINTO.

Nadir Quinto illustrated for the magazine Once Upon A Time The story Peter’s Good Servants.

These Original Watercolours appeared in print form in the magazine Once Upon A Time dated 12 June 1971 (see image above). 

Quinto was a master of colour and composition as can be seen here in these Superb Paintings.

Marvellously detailed with vibrant colours by this virtuoso of fairy tale illustrations.

NADIR QUINTO (1918-1994): Nadir Quinto’s contributions to the Thriller Picture Library were strips featuring the adventures of Robin Hood. Nadir Quinto was born in Milan and attended the Accademia di Brera and, immediately after the War, began contributing picture strips to most of the top Italian comic journals such as Dinamite, Albi di Salgari, Festival and L’Intrepido. In 1946 he began drawing and lettering strips for Corrieri dei Piccoli. After his brief time drawing Robin Hood strips for the TPL, he left comics to concentrate on illustration in magazines like Look and Learn, Once Upon A time, only to return to drawing strips for the Italian comic journals in the 1970s.

The watercolours are in excellent condition with their original bright colours.
