This is one of my favorite illustrations by one of my favorite illustrators, Fritz Eichenberg. If your not familiar with his work you should have a look. This is the cover image from his edition of Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte. This picture is a great example of using composition to tell the story. It not only illustrates the narrative but also captures the mood and emotions of the scene. Few have done it better.
