Bemelmans, Ludwig
Watercolor studies of Madeline and Pepito and the head of a young woman
n.p, 1892. Watercolor on paper, signed "Bemelmans" (lower right). 1 vols. 9-3/4 x 4-1/2 in. Original Bemelmans Watercolor Studies. Ludwig Bemelmans (1892-1962), Austrian-born American painter and writer, drew on his hotel and restaurant experiences for many of his stories and novels, which he often illustrated with his own sophisticated drawings and watercolors. Although he also wrote for adults, he is perhaps best known for his children's books, notably the Madeline series, one of which, Madeline's Rescue, won the 1954 Caldecott Award. These studies show Madeline holding hands with her next-door neighbor Pepito, the son of a Spanish ambassador who figures into several of the stories; it's tempting to imagine the sketch at the bottom of a young red haired woman as a slightly older version of Madeline. Watercolor on paper, signed "Bemelmans" (lower right). 1 vols. 9-3/4 x 4-1/2 in [Attributes: Signed Copy]
