Heinrich Lefler

Heinrich Lefler (7 November 1863, Vienna – 17 March 1919, Vienna) was an Austrian painter, graphic artist and stage designer.
Now, he illustrated a lot of books together with his brother-in-law Joseph Urban ((May 26, 1872, Vienna – July 10, 1933, New York City) Austrian-American architect, illustrator and scenic designer), so I don't know which parts of these illustrations are to be credited to which man.

HAROLD GAZE (1885-1962)

An Australian illustrator who was unknown to me before today. :-)

 Looks like Michael Parkes... :-) 
He wrote a lot of children's books, when living in Australia and England, but then he moved to USA and when older, started painting naked women like this... he was called "the bubble man", because there were a lot of bubbles in his work :-D
