Fictional characters have the power to transport us into extraordinary worlds, captivating our imaginations and leaving a lasting impression. Adrien Demont's masterpiece, "Don Quixote, " displayed at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia, beautifully captures the essence of this iconic character. With his chivalrous spirit and unwavering determination, Don Quixote embodies the timeless pursuit of noble ideals. In another literary realm, we encounter David Copperfield, whose journey from rags to riches resonates with readers across generations. The vibrant lithograph titled "The Evil Spirits of the Modern Daily Press" serves as a reminder that even fictional characters face trials and tribulations in their quest for happiness. Robinson Crusoe's tale is one that has captivated audiences since its inception. From surviving a shipwreck to building his humble hut on an uninhabited island, Crusoe epitomizes resilience and resourcefulness. These chromolithographs vividly depict both his struggle against nature and his triumph over adversity. Diving deeper into imagination's depths, we stumble upon an exhilarating scene portrayed in "A diver attacked by an octopus. " This colorful lithograph transports us beneath the waves where danger lurks but also showcases humanity's indomitable spirit when faced with perilous situations. Even advertising finds inspiration in literature as seen in the illustration featuring Don Quixote promoting Globeol—a fortifying product from around 1916. It reminds us that these beloved characters transcend their original stories and become part of our cultural fabric. Tom's dream of Injun Joe takes us back to Mark Twain's classic adventures along the Mississippi River. Engraved with meticulous detail circa 1885, this image evokes both fear and curiosity surrounding Tom Sawyer’s encounters with Native American folklore. Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe continues to inspire artists through time; a color lithograph brings forth scenes from this gripping novel—each stroke of the brush capturing Crusoe's resilience and determination.
