Notes: Erik Blegvad is a prolific children’s book artist renowned for illustrations whose fine-grained propriety could barely conceal the deep subversive wit at their core. A native of Denmark who had long divided his time between London and the United States, Mr. Blegvad was possessed of a style that on its surface was comfortingly Old World: He worked primarily in meticulous pen and ink, with some forays into watercolor. His illustrations, minutely observed, were characterized by elongated figures that recall the art of Edward Gorey, and by dense crosshatchings that suggest the early Maurice Sendak. Mr. Blegvad illustrated more than 100 picture books, including many by his wife, the writer and artist Lenore Blegvad. One is “This Little Pig-a-Wig and Other Rhymes About Pigs” (1978), which, with text chosen by Ms. Blegvad, was named one of the best illustrated children’s books of the year by The New York Times Book Review.
