Ah, my favorite page! That took way too long to research!
Again, "The Girl Who Trod on a Loaf" is a bit unique for its meta-fairy-tale narrative. Part of Inger's torment in the underworld is hearing what everybody is saying about her and her loaf-trodding ways. After all, what is a worse punishment for someone who regarded everything and everyone with contempt than...being regarded with contempt?
To use very contemporary terms, Inger loses control of her image. To show this, I wanted to show Inger's story being told (and illustrated) in different ways throughout the history of illustration. Arthur Rackham, Yann Legendre, Edward Burne-Jones, Virginia Frances Sterrett, Walter Crane, and Kay Nielsen.
Have a nice weekend!
