After immigrating to New York in 1933 to escape mounting Nazi tensions, Fritz Eichenberg received many commissions to illustrate new editions of classic literature. In his prolific career as a book illustrator he visually interpreted many different styles of writing, but excelled in material with elements of spiritual and emotional conflict, fantasy, or social satire. Subsequently, Eichenberg produced some of his best graphic work with authors such as Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Charlotte and Emily Brönte, Edgar Allen Poe, and Grimmelshausen.
