Monica MIRZA's insight:

These illustrations remind me of some paintings by Franz Marc, whose paintings might well have inspired these modern artists.

If you don't know the painter yet, I think he is worth discovering : any pictures search engine will display dazzling art work on your computer screen  :-)

She took photos of festive people and people in distress. She took photos of children and the aged. She took photos of whites and blacks (notable, given the times). Her work is marked by serendipity; she appeared to have no agenda, but instead captured what she stumbled upon. [...]"
