    Description

    Fanny Y. Cory By a Blackberry Bush Illustration Original Art (c. 1900s). Cory's early mastery of the Art Nouveau style provided a fine basis for her later accomplishments as a comic-strip artist (as in King Features' Little Miss Muffett). Cory's affinity for Nouveau champion Aubrey Beardsley shows to strong advantage in this bright, evocative nursery-tale image. Ink over graphite, with white-paint retouching, on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 10". Pronounced toning and scuffing. An eroded numerical patch appears at upper left. Good condition.
