Preliminary Drawing for Treasure Island by [Dulac, Edmund]

First Edition

Preliminary pencil and watercolour drawing for 'Treasure Island' by Dulac, n.d. but circa 1927, mounted, framed and glazed, approximately 180mm x 215mm in size, with the image 115mm x 150mm. This one is 'The Apple Barrel', inscribed 'to Marius Winslow from Edmund Dulac' to bottom right hand corner. Dulac's Treasure Island was published in 1927, with Hughey noting that the twelve watercolours in the book, "show a new Dulac style. Here he uses pale misty colours and creates little miniature gems of 18th century scenes ... The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting. He himself liked these illustrations best of all of his work" (Hughey, Edmund Dulac - His Book Illustrations: A Bibliography)
