Original Watercolour: Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

BALFOUR, Ronald

BALFOUR, Ronald Original Watercolour: Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

1920.

The original painting for the frontispiece of Balfour's illustrated version of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, ink and watercolour on paper heightened with white. Signed with monogram to the lower right hand corner. 30 x 46cm. Mounted and framed. The painting is in very good condition, bright and clean apart from some missing patches of white here and there.

Reproduced as the frontispiece for Balfour's only significant work, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, published by Constable in 1920. The exotic and sensuous depiction of the philosopher and his lover is lush and beautiful. The Art Deco fashion of the period is beautifully reflected in this large and striking painting.
