Getting Over The Wall


Genome: [r4 Bd=19690530]Brian Wildsmith tried to be a scientist, wanted to be a musician, and in fact became a brilliant maker of picture books for children, with whom he seems to communicate directly through his painting. In this interview with WILFRED DE'ATH he quotes a child's poem:

We live in a wonderful garden With walls twenty feet high That adults cannot enter

Because they only have ladders ten feet high

He sees his work as a benevolent siege on that garden, flying over the walls on the wings of his books.
