I absolutely adore Ludwig Bemelmans (most famously known for the Madeline series)Not only was he an amazing illustrator but also a gifted writer of works of fiction. One of my favorites is Hotel Splendide...a series of short stories, little vignettes of life in a five star hotel banquet hall. He has such light prose that evokes old Paris and Europe. This image is an ad he illustrated for an Italian Cruise line. Enjoy!
