Ana Juan is an illustrator, writer, sculptor and Spanish painter, born in Valencia in 1961. In 2010 won the National Illustration Award Spanish Ministry of Culture.
Her work has shown up to 16 covers of The New Yorker magazine and Time. Also her artwork can be seen on the covers of the nine titles pocket books by Isabel Allende.
I knew her work through her illustration of the enigmatic Mr. Wakefield. Ana Juan illustrates the terrifying story written by American author Nathaniel Hawthorne (Salem, 1804-Plymouth, 1864), considered by some as one of the best stories ever. The drawings created to illustrate this ambiguous fable are as spectacular as sinister, always on the line so special about this artist.
