Can't Get Enough of Kley

I really can't.
Each new Kley piece I discover online or at auction takes my breath away. Maybe it's our common German background.
This drawing was titled by Kley "The Patient". Not sure of the date.
What a wonderful whimsical situation. An unwell dragon, an eccentric doctor and a princess.
Just for a moment...imagine this being animated, moving, as is in the illustration!
What a glorious film this could be....


  1. Wow! Such a creative mind! This transports me to another world. I can imagine a million storylines for this.

  2. After a Roland Topor and Emil Pirchan exhibition in Museum Folkwang in Essen (Germany)...I think it is time for a Heinrich Kley exhibition and for a new artbook too! :)

    His work is pure inspiration and this one...Wowww! :)

  3. Wow, that coloring on the dragons body seems to have influenced Frazetta! Beautiful!
