RACKHAM, Arthur Peter Pan An Original Watercolour from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Hodder & Stoughton, 1912.

Original pen, ink and watercolour on board. Signed and dated by Rackham in the bottom left corner. 26.5cm x 37cm. Mounted, framed and glazed. A fine, large illustration of the infant Peter Pan, swaddled and sat atop a branch in Kensington Gardens.

Peter Pan was Rackham's second major commission and the work which established his reputation as a book illustrator. Issued with new illustrations in 1912 where this image is reproduced in black and white as the chapter heading for chapter 2.
A review of this book published in "The World" reads "Mr Barrie has done what no one else has done since the inventor of "Alice", he has invented a new legend, a modern folk story which comprehends all the innermost secrets of the modern child, be he four or forty. Mr Rackham, for his part, has been bewitched in his cradle: he does not dream of fairies or hobgoblins, he knows them."

LITERATURE: Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J.M.Barrie (Hodder & Stoughton, 1912) p.19 (reproduced in black and white)
