Orlando Greenwood and the Rubaiyat

January 19, 2019

Danton O”Day is investigating the illustrations that Orlando Greenwood did for FitzGerald’s Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.  He has sent us the following request addressed to blog readers.

I have come across some information revealing that Orlando Greenwood, a well-known British artist, has illustrated specific quatrains from FitzGerald’s first version of the Rubaiyat. Most likely these pictures were not published, since they were done around the start of WWI, but there may be several copies of them out there. If someone has some of these or if they have any other information about them, please let me know (email:

If you have information about Greenwood’s work, we should be glad if,  as well as sending it directly to Danton, you could post a summary as a comment below.
