  • Anybody recognize these carvings?

    211121_0004 copy.jpg
    These two carvings are on the front of a book entitled, "Woodcarver's Library" which is a compilation of 4 books by E.J. Tangerman and Eric Zimmerman. I've checked the this book and other books I have by Tangerman and I couldn't find the carvings in any of them. Zimmerman's book is all horses.

    I feel like I've seen them somewhere before, but I can't put my finger on where.

    I almost want to say they're Trygg carvings, but I don't know

    Thanks

    Is there an "about the cover" inside the book?

        Reading the reviews on this book, it sounds like Tangerman carved the people on the cover, and Zimmerman carved the horse. But looking at carvings by Trygg, I see a strong resemblance, especially in the mans jaw. If this is some thing you want to pursue, maybe contact Greenwich House and inquire about that cover. But it could be one artists influenced the other.
