NOEL LANGLEY - a name to remember

25th August 2021


NOEL LANGLEY - a name to remember! Langley was one of the 3 script writers for THE WIZARD OF OZ. He also wrote THE TALE OF THE LAND OF THE GINGERGREEN telling the story of Alladin's son - one of the first books to showcase what happens in the world of fairytale after the 'happily ever after'.

A writer and illustrator, you can see clear correlation between Langley's 2 talents in these original 1931-32 paintings we have going up for sale on 26th August.



These 3 pieces depict characters straight from the fantasy and fairytale worlds he created. With signature, and further sketches to the reverse it is definitely one step closer into his creative mind.
