1917.

An original pen, ink and watercolour painting published in "Little Brother, Little Sister" in 1917. Signed in the lower left hand corner. 26.5 x 36.5cm. Mounted, framed and glazed. In fine condition.

A superb, imposing and exquisitely detailed watercolour for "The Fitcher's Bird" by the Brothers Grimm, depicting the moment of triumph when the youngest and cleverest of three daughters, covered in honey and bird feathers, meets the evil sorcerer after he has been tricked into delivering her sisters safely home.
Rackham's depiction of Grimm's fairytales, when at the height of his creative powers. Of Little Brother & Little Sister, Fred Gettings claims, "it would be possible to select any single colour picture in order to demonstrate Rackham's art at its finest".

LITERATURE: Little Brother & Little Sister and Other Tales by The Brothers Grimm. (Constable, 1917) p.180.
