Beautiful watercolor by Goble, reminiscent of his work for THE GREEN WILLOW.
Original art: "Princess and the Holy Man"
A princess in a multi-colored gown hovers over the ground while a simply dressed monk looks at her in the background (which also has boulders, clouds and a lone tree). The full range of colors seamlessly blend into one flowing image that is quite spectacular. Executed in the same style as his work in THE GREEN WILLOW AND OTHER JAPANESE FAIRY TALES (1910), this image does not appear in the book. Goble's art does not often appear on the market and this is a truly lovely image.
n.p. n.p, [circa 1910]. 9.25'' x 13.25'' (image); 17'' x 31'' (frame). Matted, glazed and framed.
