The Art Deco Mermaids of Carlo Chiostri

Carlo Chiostri (1863 - 1939) was a prolific, Italian illustrator, quite often illustrating fairy tales.  Among these fairy pictures are his mermaids with their pretty, little faces & bright, red lips.  Something like a precursor to Disney's mermaids in Peter Pan & The Little Mermaid.

  1. What an inspiring blog!
    I came across it via Pinterest - I love these Art Deco mermaids, I love painting mermaids, too - and I see you have my favourite Yeats poem of a mermaid :)
