10 Scherenschnitte Scissors Cuttings Done after those of Hans Christian Andersen

Andersen often fell in love with unattainable women, and many of his stories are interpreted as references.

Sandy Hook, CT: Caroline Stokes, [1980]. The whimsy and fantasy found in many of his stories can be seen in these reproductions of works originally created by Andersen. In the first scherenschnitte you will see a character in his likeness unable to attain the ballerina at the top of the tree with Cupid in the tree giving him advise. The next cutwork depicts an overwhelmed fellow with an entire village atop his hat. And so they go with ballerinas, hearts, swans and more throughout. The approximate 3" to 5" cutouts are affixed to a concertina folded card stock folder.
