Pierre-Auguste Renoir Drawing — Portrait of a Young Girl ”Fillette”

French Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir pen and ink drawing with ink wash of a young girl with a hat, entitled ”Fillette”. The drawing, created circa 1882, is signed with the initial, ”R”. Renoir, who had been painting Parisian scenes for many years, saw his fame take off when, along with other Impressionist painters, including Monet, Degas and Cezanne, his work was represented in the first Impressionist Exhibition in 1874. He painted scenes of people at work and play, often painting women and girls. He was known for his free brush strokes and the warm sensuality present in the light and color of his palette. Two of Renoir’s most famous paintings, ”Luncheon of the Boating Party” and ”Girl With a Hoop”, were completed during the early 1880’s when this drawing was made. The drawing, measuring 5.5” x 7.75”, is in fine condition. With provenance from Sotheby’s. Also featured in: (1) page 171, Vol. II of ”Pastels & Drawings of Pierre-Auguste Renoir” by Ambroise Vollard. Paris: 1918; (2) page 568, Vol. II of ”Renoir. Catalogue Raisonne of the Paintings, Pastels, Drawings and Watercolours 1882-1894” by Guy-Patrice & Michel Dauberville. Paris: 2009. Described here as watercolour and without mention of signature. Sold for $65,959.

Original Ink and Watercolor Drawing by E.H. Shepard of Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet — Extraordinarily Scarce Drawing by Shepard of the Most Famous Children’s Character

Beautifully rendered watercolor and ink drawing of Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet by E.H. Shepard, the illustrator chosen by A.A. Milne to bring his literary characters to life. Here, Shepard draws Pooh and Piglet upon a letter to his agent, allowing the characters to express his feelings of gratitude and joy. In the autograph letter signed, dated 29 February 1932, Shepard thanks his agent for a letter, writing that he has “done splendidly” and that “this view is shared by others.” To emphasize his feelings, Shepard draws Winnie-the-Pooh reaching up and Piglet excitedly jumping at his side. Shepard must have been very pleased with his agent, as he very seldom drew his most famous characters; this drawing, done early in the illustrator’s career and just a few years after the Pooh series, is a rare exception. Single page is written from Long Meadow, Guildford. Light uniform toning and mounted to card. Overall in very good to near fine condition. Sold for $40,954.

Sir John Tenniel Illustration Used in the First Edition of ”Through the Looking-Glass” — With a Presentation Signing by Tenniel From ”Christmas 1876”

Sir John Tenniel original illustration from ”Through the Looking Glass”, the sequel to the enormously successful ”Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. This illustration appears on page 201 of the first edition of ”Looking Glass”, done to illustrate the text, ”She was standing before an arched doorway over which were the words QUEEN ALICE in large letters…” A presentation inscription by Tenniel is written to the lower margin, ”With Mr. Tenniel’s kind regards / Christmas 1876”. Pencil drawing was done sometime between 1869-1871 when Tenniel again collaborated with Lewis Carroll in illustrating his novel, an undertaking that Tenniel first rejected due to the time-consuming nature of the work: after drawing preliminary sketches, Tenniel would transfer the artwork onto woodblocks using tracing paper and then finish shading on the blocks. The Brothers Dalziel would then produce engravings from the blocks. Tenniel at first rejected Carroll’s offer to illustrate ”Looking Glass”, but ultimately relented as Carroll could find no other illustrator that matched Tenniel’s ”grotesque” interpretation of the fantasy creatures he envisioned. Drawing measures 3.25” x 4.5”, archivally matted and framed to 11.25” x 12.75”. Very light foxing to margins and light uniform toning, overall near fine condition. Sold for $37,500.
