Writers who make art (cont. 2)

Kate Greenaway: illustrated her many children's books with the charming drawings that we have come to recognise.

Goethe: included artist in his list of talents, and said, "The eye was above all others, the organ with which I apprehended the world. I had lived among painters from childhood and had grown accustomed like them to look at the objects about me from the point of view of the artist."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery: wrote and illustrated his most famous work : The Little Prince".
