Illustrations extracted from the tale The Three Princesses of Whiteland, published in East of the Sun and West of the Moon (1914).
The artworks are sold as a series of three prints mounted in custom-made passepartout and framed in wooden frames made of solid oak (external dimensions: 31,5 x 25,5 cm, depth 20 mm).
After being captured, a young man is taken to the legendary kingdom of Whiteland, where he finds three princesses being held by three trolls. Courageously, he defeats the trolls, rescues the three princesses and takes the youngest for his queen.
After living happily together for some time, the young boy wishes to visit his parents on earth. His queen reluctantly agrees and gives him a golden ring that can grant two wishes, one of which allows him to return home. But unable to follow his queen’s instructions, the king inadvertently uses his second wish and finds himself unable to return to his magical kingdom.
Desperate, he searches endlessly for the legendary Whiteland, but no one is able to guide him to it. Crossing the land in all directions, the young man is helped by the lords of the beasts, birds and fish, and eventually finds his castle and his queen, with whom he will -of course- live happily ever after.
