Signed original watercolor entitled "Chased into the Lake," used as a double-page spread in Conover's FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING published by FSG in 1986.
Original art from FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING
This watercolor forms part of the story of a handsome seafaring frog who woos Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around the classic English nursery rhyme, with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a "tour de force." This scene depicts the wedding party in the water after being chased by Tom Cat; Froggie has saved the day by capturing the cat in a net. Conover's work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. Intricate yet elegant.
n.p. n.p, [no later than 1986]. 9.5'' x 15.5''. Single thick sheet. Signed by Conover in lower right corner.
