ORIGINAL ART: GIANT GOLDEN BOOK OF CAT STORIES - - 1953. 
ROJANKOVSKY, FEODOR. ROJANKOVSKY,FEODOR. ORIGINAL ART: GIANT GOLDEN BOOK OF CAT STORIES. Offered here are 2 fine original watercolors that appear on pp. 65 and 27 of The Giant Book Of Cat Stories published by Golden Books in 1953. The 2 images are attractively mounted, matted and framed to 22 inches wide x 17" high. They could be separated and framed individually. The first image is a great nighttime scene with a large black cat with white paws in the foreground. An owl is flying above him and there is a house and much greenery in the background. It measures 11" high x 8", with 2 corners slightly trimmed and an unpainted area where text would be. The second image (on p. 27) is of a cat sticking its head out of a large wicker basket that is sitting outside in the grass at night with stars in the sky. The image measures 5 1/2" high x 4 1/2". Rojankovsky was a Russian emigre artist who became an important illustrator of children's books. He illustrated the Domino Press' landmark Daniel Boone, and won the Caldecott Award in 1956 for Frog Went A'Courtin. Original art by Rojan rarely appears on the market and these are great images.
