Original watercolor drawing for A Child's Christmas in Wales
by Thomas, Dylan
2014. Bailey, Peter. Watercolor on paper measuring 8 1/4 by 11 3/4 inches (image area 4 1/8 by 3 1/4 inches). Matted. The illustration appears on page 45 of the printed work, accompanying the following text: "And some few small aunts, not wanted in the kitchen, nor anywhere else for that matter, sat on the very edges of their chairs, poised and brittle, afraid to break, like faded cups and saucers." In Bailey's rendering, three fragile women sit between a window and a small Christmas tree set atop a sideboard. Peter Bailey is a prolific illustrator who has 140 works to his credit, primarily children's books. The edition of Thomas's immortal Christmas tale was published to commemorate the centenary of Thomas's birth. A copy of the published book is included with the artwork. Very fine.
