Van Sandwyk:   Books     Ephemera    Etchings






#136322                                                                   $4200


Vancouver: Charles Van Sandwyk Fine Arts,  Original watercolour painting. Painting measures 8" X 6.25". The image is signed at the bottom right corner. Encased in elegant and decorative 2.25" wooden frame (frame measures 17" X 14"). Brown acid free matting with red and gilt rule border decoration. A beautiful piece.


A fantastic image showing Rumpelstiltskin (from the classic children's fairy tale) dancing around a fire in impish delight. Two forest animals watch him from the foreground (one is a rabbit smoking a pipe). A small hut and forest are visible at the rear.


Illustration from the Blue Fairy Book, a collection of classic children's tales released by the Folio Society and illustrated by Van Sandwyk. The watercolour illustrates a part near to end of the story where Rumpelstiltskin is dancing around the fire saying his name. It is this scene that the servant spies, from which he passes the name onto the Queen (who uses it to get out of giving away her first child).

A delicate drawing of two small elf-like creatures from the book Afterglow. The larger figure appears to struggle beneath the weight of a large pumpkin. He is dressed in a leaf like tunic and wears a pointed hat with large feather. The smaller figure contemplates a wine glass with impish delight. A beautiful sketch reminiscent of harvest and celebration.
