How the day goes by for Lille is considered among the earliest Danish children's picture books, but ironically appeared first in French as La Journeé de Mll. Lili (1862). The Danish artist Lorenz Frølich was then living in Paris, where he soon got great success as an illustrator. The first versions of little Lise were in black and white, but in 1889 the publisher Ernst Bojesen ordered Frølich to prepare a completely new version in color and with text by Ernest vor der Reche. It is this edition that is used as a template for the map folder.
The model for Lise was Lorenz Frølich's little daughter Edma, whose daily inventions inspired him to the picture narrative, which in book form consists of 21 situations.
Lorenz Frølich ( 1820 - 1908 ) Danish painter, draftsman and graphic artist, was taught as a child of renowned golden age painters such as Martinus Rørbye , CW Eckersberg and Christen Købke . At the age of 20, he traveled to Germany and Italy and was a student of art schools in Munich , Dresden and Rome. In 1851 he settled in Paris , married and lived largely in France for the next 22 years. His numerous illustrations for children's books meant that the term "a children's book" was simply called Froelich in French. After his wife's death, he moved to Denmark and became a diligent supplier of illustrations for example. Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales, Nordic gods and popular Danish stories. Frølich has also decorated a number of the ceilings at Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød.
