Humphrey, Maud; [Prang, Louis]
Original art: "Rosa"
n.p., n.p, 1890. Signed original watercolor for a line of greeting cards by Louis Prang, "The Father of the American Christmas Card." Depicted is a lovely little girl in a blue dress wearing a fancy hat. She is holding a flower in a cup. Surrounding her is an elaborate array of roses and foliage. Humphrey was one of the first great American women illustrators paving the way for Jessie Willcox Smith, Grace Drayton and the many other women illustrators of the early 20th century. Humphrey is also known for being Humphrey Bogart's mother (and she used her son as a model for many of her pictures). Prang's wild success in creating chromolithographed -color printed - holiday and greeting cards made images like this a major fashion in the late 19th-century United States. An absolutely beautiful portrait. 11.25'' x 9.5''. Single matted watercolor signed by Humphrey. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
Vendeur: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
