Beautiful Original Kate Greenaway Watercolor GREENAWAY, Kate, [artist]. "Under the Cherry Blossom". [N.d., ca. 1895]. Pen, ink and watercolor drawing. [N.d, c.a. 1895]. Two young girls in a daisy strewn meadow with five geese in the foreground and a tree laden with blossoms in the background. (Image size: 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches; 11 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches framed). Matted, framed, glazed. Kate Greenaway (1846-1901). Born in London to an engraver father and a seamstress mother, Kate Greenaway's drawings were to capture forever an idealized image of Regency in childhood and rural life. From the age of twelve, Greenaway studied her craft, first at the Finsbury School of Art and later at the newly founded Slade School of Fine Art. Greenaway got her first commissions through her father and after one of her card designs sold 25,000 copies in just a few weeks, her work became very sought after by publishers. Greenaway's lines were always light, fine and sure, her watercolors delicate in color and application and she used little or no shading in her work. She depicted clothing meticulously and drew her figures, flowers and plants from life. Her enormous popularity spawned hundreds of imitators. HBS 67428. $7,500
