[Original Drawing]: The White Snake
(1924). Original pencil drawing illustrating a scene from: "The White Snake" by the Brothers Grimm. The drawing measures about 3.5" x 3.5" on a 5.5" x 7.5" sheet, tipped into a mat frame. Near fine. Signed by Gaskin with his initials and date. An English illustrator, painter, and designer of jewellery, enamelwork, and books, Gaskin was a member of the Birmingham Group of artist-craftsmen, which sought to apply the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement across the decorative arts. In the 1890s he caught the attention of William Morris, who arranged for him to design the pictures for two Kelmscott Press books: The Well at the World's End and The Shepheard's Calendar; the latter is described by Gordon Ray as "perhaps the most successful of Kelmscott Press illustrations." A fine, late drawing by Gaskin, who died in 1928. .
