Most of these paintings were done by Greg for
a series of classic books in 1988. I purchased
these from Spiderweb
Art Gallery, who still
have some for sale.
In my visit to the spiderweb art gallery, I saw
several of these original paintings. I was
treated to a personal tour where they talked
about some of the models, background, and
Jean mentioned her motivation for publishing
these was to provide the original stories,
untarnished by movie versions, and richly
illustrated by Greg for a new generation of
young readers. What resulted was a fantastic
set of classic books.
