    Description

    Walter Appleton Clark (1876-1906) Original Magazine Story Illustration (c.1900).
    For The Wolf of the City, with the (possible) caption, "The woman had caught herself upon the edge of the table, and with that for a support was working towards him." The story title, along with several page notations and text quotes, are noted on the verso.
    Walter Appleton Clark died at the age of thirty, having painted for only ten years; consequently, original works by him are exceedingly uncommon.
    Watercolor on board, approximately 23 x 17.5. Signed lower middle.
    There is some staining visible in a few areas of the art, but it in no way detracts from the overall image.

    keywords: illustrator, painting, drama, art nouveau, Scribner's artist
