Original watercolor story panels for Upsidedowntown
N.p., c. 1949. Nine brilliant watercolor paintings on paper, each measuring approximately 8 1/2 by 11 inches. Colorful, accomplished set of story panels for what is presumably an unpublished children’s book, the unwritten narrative of which follows a group of balloon children as they are sold by a balloon vendor at a county fair, then drift up into “Upsidedowntown.” There, they frolic with a dog and go to a candy store. One of them is punctured by some bad nails and then patched up by a kindly doctor balloon. This all takes place with the county fair upside down in the panel. The story ends with a green balloon child in bed, with a child’s bedroom upside down above. An especially innovative children’s tale told in picture form, without words, by an artist who signs two panels “Alberta.” Two panels with tape marks on verso, else fine and bright.
