1909.

Original watercolour, signed and dated in the lower right hand corner. 18 x 26cm. Mounted, framed and glazed In fine condition.

One of two watercolours Rackham produced for Midsummer Night's Dream in the collected Tales from Shakespeare (1909) based on Charles and Mary Lamb's retelling of the plays in prose. Rackham had also produced a full suite of plates for an individual version a year earlier. In this painting he perfectly captures the impish character of the cheeky Puck.
