LE CAIN, Errol An Original Ink, Gouache and Watercolour Painting Long Ago There lived a King Called Arthur

1967.

Two original ink, water-colour and gouache paintings for the opening pages of 'King Arthur's Sword'. Mounted together with the proposed text for the opening pages of the book. Internal mount size, 47cm x 33cm.

Original artwork for Le Cain's first book.
"A literary agent had brought me a typescript and a sheaf of illustrations for a story about King Arthur; he had received them from a friend of the artist, who was said to be too shy to approach a publisher except at third hand. Once our enthusiasm for his pictures had been reported to him this terror must have abated." Phyllis Hunt, Le Cain's editor at Faber & Faber.

PROVENANCE: From the collection of Barrie Merritt, close friend and colleague of Le Cain's at Pearl and Dean studios.
