The giant with the flaming sword
from website University of Nottingham
The painter John Charles Dollman (1851-1934) was a popular illustrator - his work conveys a powerful sense of drama. In 1908 E M Wilmot-Buxton used eight of Dollman's images in Told by the Northmen, and in the following year nine were reproduced in H A Guerber's Myths of the Norsemen from the Eddas and Sagas. Among his most arresting illustrations are The Giant with the flaming sword, and The wolves pursuing Sol and Mani. Dollman's images of Frigga Spinning the Clouds and Sigurd and Gunnar are often reproduced.
