Caption

The Drop of Water. This artwork, by Edward Henry Wehnert (1813-1868), was drawn to illustrate the tale 'The Drop of Water' from 'Andersen's Tales for Children' (1861). The original tale, by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875), was written in 1848. It tells how the old man (Kribble-Krabble) looked at the drop of water and saw how 'thousands of little creatures hopped and sprang and tugged at one another, and ate each other up.'.
