On Monday, I posted a note about the artist who created these pieces of concept art for the abandoned Hans Christian Andersen project. I knew that there had been mostly two artists working on the project in the early '40s: John McLeish and a French painter called Charles Hoffbauer. Based on their respective styles I am now 99.9% sure that it was actually Hoffbauer who created this art. We should have more info about the whole thing in a few months since some of Hobbauer's diaries have survived and are preserved in Washington D.C.
