The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical-fantasy film mainly directed by Victor Fleming and based on the 1900 children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. In the film, Dorothy, a schoolgirl living in Kansas, is struck unconsicious during a tornado. She dreams about how she and her dog Toto, with the help of a Scarecrow, a Tin man and a Cowardly Lion, find their way home from the magical world of Oz.

Many people like these four characters very much: sweet Dorothy, smart Scarecrow, brave Tin man and sensetive Lion. Many artists like them as well, and they have created various artworks featuring the four to show their fondness. We have selected 25 of the best illustrations, which might remind you of that magical world and that famous song “Over the Rainbow”.

    Let me first admit that I am overwhelmed to find illustrations on the Wizard of Oz.. This has been one of my favorite movies and I could immediately recollect those sweet memories.. this is more like a gift for me and thanks for giving me this gift..

    Very cool ideas. It’s interesting to see how each artist imagines the same theme so differently.

    Wizard of Oz is a favorite of mine. My dog is named ‘Oz.’ Absolutely love this collection.

    he’s a TINMAN, not a ROBOT!!
    i mean, i’m all for creative license, but i don’t see anyone changing the lion to a tiger do you? no, because he’s a lion.
    that’s just slightly annoying, even art has SOME restrictions, that’s the challenge of art!
