Lord of the Rings by Cor Blok

Cor Blok painted a series of images illustrating LOTR from 1958-1961. Inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry, his simple style conveys a wealth of narrative and emotional information. Few know that Tolkien did not want LOTR illustrated but he admired Blok’s work and purchased two paintings.
