A story a day – The Fairy of Dawn.

This is the beautiful character who gave the name to the fairy tale written by Ioan Slavici. He wrote the fairy tale at the urging of Mihai Eminescu, who read it at Junimea and published it in the “Convorbiri Literare” magazine in 1872.

It was also one of the 18 Romanian fairy tales with fairies published in English in 1885 by Henry Holt & Company in New York, under the name “Fairy Aurora”. I really liked the fairy tale when I read it, and I painted the Fairy of Dawn at the international painting competition “Stories from my Country” organized during the summer vacation by the Museum of Viticulture and Pomology Golesti, Arges county, which brought me the third prize.
