Description:
: , 1875. A Superb Pair of DrawingsIn the Early Style of Kate Greenaway[GREENAWAY, Kate], (In the style of). "Happiness" and "Dismay". Two ink drawings, initialed and dated 1875.A pair of two original pen and ink drawings.Image sizes: 6 1/2 x 6 3/8 inches: 165 x 162 mm. Beautifully matted, framed and glazed separately with a cream mat and gray border. (Each frame size: 16 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches; 419 x 343 mm.).This pair of very sweet drawings that are full of emotion are most certainly in the early style of Kate Greenaway. One depicts a young girl and boy in a garden by a water pump and large urn. The boy is holding an apple an the girl is offering him a bite of a pie. The other drawing shows the same girl and boy crying as the large urn has shattered into pieces at their feet. We have been unable to identify the initials but we believe that they were done by a very accomplished mid-Victorian artist.
