Bryan has taken Rosetti’s classic poems and added his own cut paper art illustrations in his vibrant colors and exuberant style. Some of the illustrations feel more appropriate to the tone of the poems than others. Art teachers may be interested in this to show a deeper range of this artistic style beyond Matisse. A classroom teacher can be inspired for a short art/poetry lesson.
