In this charming print of 1928-29, printmaker and children's book illustrator Wanda Gag transforms an ordinary stone crushing machine left by a wayside into a storybook dragon set in a lush, fanciful landscape. Her dynamic drawing style and attention to detail animates the scene with a lively energy that further enhances the whimsical illusion.
