ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING WITH WATERCOLOR, SIGNED
Np. ca. 1917. [Np. ca. 1917].. Approximately 22 x 11 cm, in contemporary mat (the latter 35.5 x 25 cm). Mat edgeworn and somewhat dust darkened, with a few minor spots, but generally very good. A charming period drawing, inscribed as a gift to his model, Hildegarde Hirsch on the mat: "To Hildegarde on her sixteenth birthday. Rockwell." There is also a small 'H' in the lower right foreground of the image in his hand. Hirsch was a performer with the Ziegfeld Follies, and was both Kent's model and his lover. "The reference to 'sixteenth' birthday is facetious, as there is evidence that she was in her 20s when they met and may have been married and separated prior to the relationship with RK" - Stanley, REDISCOVERING ROCKWELL KENT. The drawing was published, without color, in the November 1917 issue of VANITY FAIR. GROLIER (STANLEY) 9.
