Hugo Simberg (1873-1917) was an important Finnish artist, best known for his great painting, “The Wounded Angel,” which provokes a variety of interpretations to this day. He paints in a deceptively primitive mode, with devils and angels as a common theme. This exquisitely produced book with its beautiful binding includes sketches and photographs by Simberg, and a highly interesting account of his nonconformist life and the significance of “The Wounded Angel.”
