About this Item: [n.p.]: , 1932, 1932. A Superb Original Arthur Rackham Watercolor Drawing RACKHAM, Arthur (1867-1939). "Just as the swineherd was taking the eighty-sixth kiss." [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1932]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the color plate facing p. 84, illustrating the fairy tale "The Swineherd" in Arthur Rackham's Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen (London: [1932]). Signed at lower left. Image size: 11 13/16 x 9 1/16 inches; 300 x 231 mm. Matted, framed, and glazed. This highly detailed pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing depicts the swineherd, "that is to say, the Prince (but, of course, they did not know that he was not a real swineherd)," and the Princess sitting just outside the pigsty, kissing, with three pigs in the pigsty at lower left, five maids of honor standing around them at right counting the kisses, and the Emperor watching them from behind a brick fence. "Now well into his sixties, Rackham was in any case gradually moving away from the vitalized energetic gothic vision of the world, and an imaginative richness, one might even say a lyrical tone was entering his work. With the distinct mellowing and spiritualization of vision which comes with age, there was an urge to find an eternal mellowing of style. Yet it appears from some of the drawings and paintings of the early thirties that Rackham was aware of the public's reluctance to accept this change; they wanted the old Rackham, the one who would give them fairies, monsters, dragons, gnomes and living trees." (Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 154). "The Observer invited Hugh Walpole to chose the best picture-book of 1932. 'I give the prize without hesitation to Rackham's Hans Andersen,' Walpole replied. 'He has risen nobly to his subject. He has acquired a new tenderness and grace. His fantasy is stronger than ever.' Twenty-five years after its publication, the Hans Andersen had become one of the most difficult of Rackham's books to buy second-hand" (Hudson, Arthur Athur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 133-34).

About this Item: [Sussex]: , 1933, 1933. "Hop-O-'My Thumb" RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "Hop-o'-my-thumb went up to the Ogre softly and pulled off his seven-league boots" [Sussex]. 1933. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing, signed "A Rackham" on lower left-hand corner, for the color plate facing page 28 in the The Arthur Rackham Fairy Book. London: George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd. [1933]. Image size: 9 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches; 241 x 172 mm. (board size: 10 3/16 x 8 3/8 inches: 259 x 212 mm.). Matted, framed and glazed. "Seven-league boots are very tiresome to the person who wears them; so the Ogre now began to think of resting, and happened to sit down on the very rock where the poor children were hid. As he was so tired, and it was a very hot day, he fell asleep, and soon began to snore so loudly that the little fellows were terrified. When Hop-o'-my-thumb saw this he said to his brothers, "Courage, my lads! Never fear! You have nothing to do but to steal away and get home while the Ogre is fast asleep, and leave me to shift for myself." The brothers now were very glad to do whatever he told them, and so they soon came to their father's house. In the meantime Hop-o'my-thumb went up to the Ogre softly, pulled off his seven-league boots very gently, and put them on his own legs: for though the boots were very large, yet, being fairy boots, they could make make themselves small enough to fit any leg they pleased." This illustration was also used on the front panel of the dust jacket on the first trade edition. This is an exceptional watercolor encapsulating everything that Rackham is known for. Here we have an Ogre - wearing a red and white striped bandana on his head with pointed ears, a very long pointed nose and sharp teeth. He is sleeping with a grin on his face, totally oblivious as to what tiny Hop-o'-my-thumb is doing. One of his Seven-league boots is already off his left foot, lying on the ground and Hop-o'-my-thumb is trying to pull the enormous right boot off the Ogre. The Ogre is lying between the roots of an giant tree within a forest of trees and there are little white flowers on the ground around him. In the foreground are six pixie-like children running away from the Ogre, just as Hop-o'-my-thumb told them to do. A truly masterful watercolor, with Rackham using his art to create a time capsule and epitomizing his skill in bringing a moment in time to life. Seven-league boots are an element in European folklore. The boot allows the person wearing them to take strides of seven leagues per step, resulting in great speed. The boots are often presented by a magical character to the protagonist to aid in the completion of a significant task. Mention of the legendary boots are found in: Charles Perrault's Hop o My Thumb (France) and also Jack the Giant Killer (England). Nº de ref. del artículo: 03832

About this Item: [n.p.]: , 1922, 1922. A Superb Original Arthur Rackham Watercolor Drawing for Nathaniel Hawthorne's "A Wonder Book" RACKHAM, Arthur (1867-1939). "The Paradise of Children." London: 1922. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the tinted line drawing illustrating "The Paradise of Children" ("Pandora's Box") in Nathaniel Hawthorne's A Wonder Book (London: [n.d., 1922]). Signed and dated at lower right. Image size: 15 x 11 inches (381 x 279 mm.). Matted, framed, and glazed. "Long, long ago, when this old world was in its tender infancy, there was a child, who never had either a father or a mother; and, that he might not be lonely, another child, fatherless and motherless like himself, was sent from a far country, to live with him, and be his playfellow and helpmate. Her name was Pandora. The first thing that Pandora saw, when she entered the cottage where Epimetheus dwelt, was a great box. And almost the first question which she put to him, after crossing the threshold, was this,- 'Epimetheus, what have you in that box?' 'My dear little Pandora,' answered Epimetheus, 'That is a secret, and you must be kind enough not to ask any questions about it. The box was left here to be kept safely, and I do not myself know what it contains.' 'But who gave it to you?' asked Pandora. 'And where did it come from?' 'That is a secret too,' replied Epimetheus. 'How provoking!' exclaimed Pandora, pouting her lip. 'I wish the great ugly box were out of the way!' 'Oh come, don't think of it anymore" cried Epimetheus. "Let us run out of doors, and have some nice play with the other children.' It is thousands of years since Epimetheus and Pandora were alive; and the world, nowadays, is a very different sort of thing from what it was in their time. Then, everybody was a child. There needed no fathers and mothers to take care of the children; because there was no danger, nor trouble of any kind, and no clothes to be mended, and there was always plenty to eat and drink. Whenever a child wanted his dinner, he found it growing on a tree; and, if he looked at the tree in the morning, he could see the expanding blossom of that night's supper; or, at eventide, he saw the tender bud of tomorrow's breakfast. It was a very pleasant life indeed. No labor to be done, no tasks to be studied; nothing but sports and dances, and sweet voices of children talking, or caroling like birds, or gushing out in merry laughter, throughout the livelong day." This charming watercolor drawing depicts life as it was before Pandora opened the "great ugly box"- a wonderfully gentle pastoral scene, with a group of three naked children dancing merrily, without a care in the world, with "the expanding blossoms of that night's supper" hanging heavily on the tree above their heads and "the tender bud of tomorrow's breakfast" growing on the plants in the foreground. "The moment one opens Hawthorne's Wonder Book one becomes aware of the rounding and softening of form in Rackham's work. The modern Pandora of Hawthorne opens her box for the world in 1921, and she is a very living young girl, with breasts just beginning to swell, indicating that Rackham was aware of the undertones of this story which is being retold with every lifetime. In 'The Paradise of Children' from the same text the children are drawn in line, but the washes of colour give them a rotundity of form and a very human life. The point which Rackham is making, surely, is that these are real children, a real Pandora, and not some dream from fairy land" (Fred Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 141).

About this Item: 1928. Condición: Matted and framed. Watercolor and pen and black ink on paper, signed "Arthur Rackham" (lower right). 8-1/2 x 6-3/4 in. Rackham's superb illustration of the hapless schoolmaster of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane. Rackham has captured the essence of Irving's description: "He was tall, but exceedingly lank, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, hands that dangled a mile out of his sleeves, feet that might have served for shovels, and his whole frame most loosely hung together. His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snipe nose, so that it looked like a weather-cock, perched upon his spindle neck, to tell which way the wind blew. To see him striding along the profile of a hill on a windy day, with his clothes bagging and fluttering about him one might have mistaken him for the genius of famine descending upon the earth, or some scarecrow eloped from a cornfield" Provenance: Estate of Connecticut artist Rachel Breck. Literature: Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (George G. Harrap & Co, 1928); Latimore & Haskell, pp. 63-4; Riall, pp. 164-5 Watercolor and pen and black ink on paper, signed "Arthur Rackham" (lower right). 8-1/2 x 6-3/4 in. Nº de ref. del artículo: 100117

About this Item: [London]: , 1926, 1926. Ariel, Iris, Ceres & Juno The Title-Page Design for Arthur Rackham's Illustrated Version of William Shakespeare's Play "The Tempest" RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "Ariel, Iris, Ceres & Juno" [London, 1926]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing, signed "Arthur Rackham" on lower right-hand corner. The design for the title-page in the Rackham-illustrated edition of The Tempest. London: William Heinemann, Ltd. [1926]. Image and board size: 15 1/8 x 10 7/8 inches; 384 x 276 mm. Matted, framed and glazed (frame size: 25 3/4 x 20 3/4 inches; 654 x 526 mm.). The title-page drawing appeared in the book uncolored. As was often the case, Arthur Rackham has added background and full watercolor to the image in order to enhance its salability. This exquisite ethereal watercolor from Shakespeare's Tempest, depicts a pastoral scene with the airy spirit Ariel in a pale blue smock looking like it is spun from melody and fragrance. He is dancing by the side of a wispy, highly detailed tree and is holding a flute-like instrument in his left hand. He looks so happy as if he's just been freed by Prospero. In the background there are some distant trees and hills - a very peaceful scene. The tree in the foreground is somewhat different to Rackham's usual trees as it doesn't have his signature faces and arms within it. It is delicate and light hearted with leaves and berries growing within its trunk and branches. There is a squirrel sitting just above Ariel's head and birds can be seen in the overhanging branch. In the top half of the watercolor, Iris, Ceres, and Juno are dancing above the long branch, each of them playing an instrument - a lute, a shawm or flute and a tambourine. Arthur Rackham manages with the strokes of his pen and brush to capture all that has ever been and all that ever will be, one beautiful thought, one moment depicted exquisitely. Ariel: A spirit of the island, over whom Prospero becomes master after ousting Sycorax. He is the source of Prospero's magical powers, causing the tempest and many of the conspiracies in the play, and works for Prospero somewhat against his will. He is an intelligent, capable servant, and is finally freed by Prospero for his devoted service. Iris, Ceres, Juno, Nymphs, Reapers: Figures that appear in Prospero's betrothal masque for Miranda and Ferdinand in Act IV. Iris, Ceres, and Juno are goddesses from Roman myth; Iris is goddess of the rainbow, Ceres presides over agriculture, and Juno is queen of the gods. The parts are all performed by spirits, with Ariel performing the part of Ceres. Nº de ref. del artículo: 03831

About this Item: [London]: , 1918, 1918. "Jack the Giant Killer" RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "The giant Cormoran was the terror of all the country-side" [London, 1918]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing, signed "Arthur Rackham" on lower left-hand corner, for the color plate facing page 76, in the Rackham-illustrated edition of English Fairy Tales. London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1918. Image size: 10 x 7 5/8 inches: 254 x 194 mm. (board size: 11 1/4 x 7 15/16 inches: 286 x 202 mm.). Matted, framed and glazed. Written on the back of the watercolor in black ink, in Arthur Rackham's hand "A. Rackham/English Fairy Tales./No. 1 (Jack the Giant Killer)". "In those days, the Mount of St. Michael in Cornwall was the fastness of a hugeous giant whose name was Cormoran. He was full eighteen feet in height, some three yards about the middle, of a grim face, and was the terror of all the country-side. He lived in a cave amidst the rocky Mount, and when he desired victuals he would wade across the tides to the mainland and furnish himself forth with all that came in his way. The poor folk and the rich folk alike ran out of their houses and hid themselves when they heard the swish-swash of his big feet in the water; for if he saw them, he would think nothing of broiling half-a-dozen or so of them for breakfast. As it was, he seized their cattle by the score, carrying off half-a-dozen fat oxen on his back at a time, and hanging sheep and pigs to his waistbelt like bunches of dip-candles." (Jack the Giant Killer). In this stupendous watercolor, Cormoran is scouting for victims in the middle of a village. He has at least two oxen slung over his shoulder and four pigs tied to his waistband. His face is exactly what a giant's face should look like - really ugly with crossed-eyes and an underbite like a bulldog. In the background, villagers are scurrying away over the fields and low stone walls outside the village and in the foreground we see a small dog running towards two villagers and their child who are hiding the other side of a pigsty. Another woman villager is ducking out of Cormoran's way and in the house to his right is a little boy peeping out of an upstairs window. The feeling of fear is overwhelming in this incredible watercolor - Rackham manages to depict the sheer terror of these poor people and the feeling of total domination that Cormoran has over them which is clearly established in the stance and demeanor of the giant. Provenance: Sessler's Bookshop, Philadelphia with their typed description on back of frame. Nº de ref. del artículo: 03833

Of Rackham's designs Barrie wrote, "I like best of all the Serpentine with the fairies, and the Peter in his night-gown sitting in the tree. Next I would [sic] the flying Peters, the fairies going to the ball (as in the 'tiff' and the fairy on cobweb) the fairies sewing the leaves with their sense of fun (the gayest thing this) and your treatment of snow" (Ray 329). Perhaps Barrie's comments influenced Rackham's selection, as this portfolio includes all the images he mentioned. Latimore & Haskell pp. 39-40; Riall p. 113. Nº de ref. del artículo: 113285

About this Item: : , 1913, 1913. "Wee Folk" Original Watercolor Drawing for "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures" RACKHAM, Arthur. "Wee Folk." [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1913]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the seventh color plate in "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures" (London: 1913). Signed "Arthur Rackham" within a cartouche at lower right. With a label on the reverse, signed and dated by Rackham: "Exhibition of Works by/Arthur Rackham/Held at The Leicester Galleries,/Leicester Square, London./Nov 1913/No. 54 Goblins/Purchaser/A.W. Moro Esq." Image size: 9 1/2 x 5 5/16 inches; 240 x 135 mm. Matted, framed, and glazed. A superb example of Arthur Rackham's masterly penmanship, incredibly understated in its conception and wonderfully evocative. This watercolor is reproduced on p. 131 of Fred Gettings's Arthur Rackham (London: 1975). Arthur Rackham's Picture Book "consists of a series of forty-four coloured plates and a few line drawings with an amusing introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch.In his Introduction Sir Arthur waxes poetic about the collection, speaking of it as a kind of 'biography'" (Gettings, p. 321). In this delicate drawing, Rackham is at his best with this simple rendering, using soft washes of color and drawing his typically well-known animals and elves. "Therefore, even if there were no such things as fairies, the children would have to invent them - pixies, nixies, gnomes, goblins, elves, kobbolds, and the rest - to account for the marvels that are happening all the while, but especially while we sleep." (Introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch to Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures, p.29). Fred Gettings Arthur Rackham, p.131. Nº de ref. del artículo: 04287

Dent edition of "The Ingoldsby Legends" (page 465). Rackham undertook a 'careful overhauling' of the book in which 'many of the pen drawings have been reconsidered and worked on again.'

About this Item: The book published in Cambridge At the University Press for Members of the Limited Editions Club 1954, 1954. Together two items. AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR PAINTING, SIGNED by Dulac and reprinted as one of the illustrations for the publication of COMUS. With, a copy of the book itself, first edition thus from the L.E.C. in a printing of 1500 numbered copies. The painting is of a woman standing in field of flowers within the curve of a dragon s tale. Behind her is a large tree laden with fruit and with additional floral and arboreal decorations in the background. The book contains the printed version of this work along with 5 other colourplates from original watercolours by Dulac. This was the last book to be illustrated by Dulac. With frame,16.5" 13.5" , the painting is now handsomely matted and presented in silver-leafed wooden frame. The book is in the publisher s original parchment backed marbled boards, the spine lettered in gilt and housed in the original black slipcase lettered in gilt. 58, [16]. The original painting in beautiful condition, very handsomely framed and presented, the book is a fine and bright copy, the slipcase only with very minor wear. A RARE AND BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL PAINTING BY EDMUND DULAC. Dulac is considered one of the most original and prolific book illustrator s of the first two decades of the 20th century. His name is often linked with Arthur Rackham, as they both produced illustrations for lavish gift books for children and adults which were of the highest quality and commercial success. Dulac, born a Frenchman, settled in England to build his artistic career. He quickly caught the eye of J.M Dent publishers and produced illustrations for an illustrated edition of Jane Eyre in 1905. But it was when he was discovered by Leicester Galleries that his career actually took off. They had been seeking another talented artist of the stature and appeal of Arthur Rackham for children s gift book illustrations. At that time, children s books were purchased by the wealthy as symbols of good taste and there was a huge market to be captured by a new, imaginative artist. Dulac was the perfect choice. Dulac offered a new sensibility to book illustration by his intense use of color, his Eastern atmosphere, his brightly jeweled patterns, and mystical themes. His work met with instant success and approbation. From 1907 with the publication of his magnificent Arabian Nights until 1914 with the issue of Sinbad the Sailor, he published an annual collection of outstanding watercolors for gift books for children. These books included: The Tempest in 1908, the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam in 1909, Sleeping Beauty in 1910, Stories from Hans Anderson in 1911, Bells and other Poems (Edgar Allan Poe) in 1912, and Princess Badoura in 1913. During the war years, when an understandable shift in publishing took place, he produced Princess Mary s Gift Book, King Albert s Books, Edmund Dulac s Picture Book for the French Red Cross, and in 1916 Edmund Dulac s Fairy Book. All of his books were highly praised and he became one of the most sought after illustrators in the world. Dulac as a young artist had been deeply inspired by William Morris, Walter Crane and Aubrey Beardsley. He had a spiritual temperament which developed throughout his life and was intensified by his exposure to Eastern mysticism. Much of his art was inspired by Persian miniatures in its use of bright, radiant colors, detailed patterns and asymmetrical compositions. He aimed to take his art out of the realm of representation and into a more subjective, mystical "eternal" plane. He produced some of the most enduring works of beauty and transcendence during his artistic career, and continues to be appreciated and collected to this day. Dulac's illustrations conjure the mysterious atmosphere of the oriental text and transport the reader to a lyrical world of grace and beauty. "The Arabian Nights gave Dulac an opportunity to indulge in his nocturnes; the the softness of the gleam of moonlight on stone, or on shadowy figures, and his use of ultramarine, indigo and Prussian blue, min.
