Dana Schobel-Roman portrait of an artist

"I have been in dialogue with children's literature for many years now, a genre which I consider very seriously. Every book I illustrated meant for me a challenge, a unique experience, as a writer cannot repeat his inner self from one page to another. How do I approach this literature? Where the text does not call me there is no pleasure in me to illustrate at all, so I refrain from it as I would from half measures."

Florin Noël

Florin Noël  aka Roni Noel was born on the 20th of November 1912, in Vaslui and died in 1984. He graduated  the Academy of Fine Arts, Bucharest, in 1935, in Camil Ressu professor's class. He was Head of works at the Institute of Fine Arts "Nicolae Grigorescu", in  Bucharest  between 1950-1956.
I think Roni Noel 's whimsical style and fine water colors are best represented in the fairy tale "Doi feti cu stea in frunte". With just a few simple strokes he endowed his characters with a variety of feelings: curiosity, anger, impatience, sorrow, shrewdness, goodness, purity or evilness. I read this story so many times as a child, I could never get enough of the drawings.
