This original lithograph (one of four editioned at the Curwen Print Studio with master lithographer Stanley Jones) formed part of the fabulous Curwen edition of Aesop’s Fables. This is from a dissassembled volume of that book. Most of these original lithographs were signed, but some were not…this is one that isn’t. Those that are signed go for double the price plus…and in all other ways they are identical. Elisabeth’s biographer wrote of the illustrations and the printing of this book: ‘ They were exquisite…. an excellent outlet for Lis’s love of graphics…beautiful drawings: the superlatives run out….the drawings and watercolours looked as though they had been straight on to the page, so excellent was the printing’.
Excellent condition with just slight age toning on the edges, obscured by the mount. It will be supplied with a double mount and backing board ready for framing. (NB with mount and backing board the overall size is 20 x 16 ins.). NB we have also aquired a signed version of this work…enquire for details if interested.
