NIELSEN, Kay List, Ah List to the Zephyr in the Grove An Original Watercolour from "In Powder and Crinoline"

1913.

Original pen, ink, watercolour and wash heightened with gold and graphite. 270x310mm. Signed and dated ([19]13) in the lower left corner. A fine, beautifully characteristic piece in excellent condition with a couple of faint spots in the yellow sky. Mounted and framed.

Nielsen shows in his development a fancy so delicate and an outlook so original that no charge of plagiarism can be brought against him. His colour work is delicate and suggestive rather than forceful. Very lovely is its faint blues and greens with tones of peach is the illustration plate 21 [i.e. this painting] where the high folly, the love birds and the blossom testify to the legacy of Japan. - Keith Nicholson (Kay Nielsen, 1975)
Nielsen produced 26 watercolours for In Powder & Crinoline to illustrate seven fairy tales chosen by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. This watercolour illustrates the story, "Felicia or The Pot of Pinks".

LITERATURE: In Powder and Crinoline edited by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (Hodder & Stoughton, 1913), p.52.
