    Description

    Couple on Swing Illustration Original Art (1939). A lovely image of vaguely documented pedigree. Handwriting in lower margin indicates what may be a title, World's Perfect, and cites "Nov. 13." An image of the 1939 World's Fair is visible in the background. One rubber-stamp imprint reads, "1939 Oct. 23," and another cites the name of E.H. Miner, an artist-turned-editor of the early 20th Century. A lovely painting, made all the more so by its hinted, mysterious origins. Ink, white watercolor, and crayon over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 8" x 10". Light toning. Excellent condition. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
