"Pan Playing Pipes by Tree" by Terese Isolde Gilbert, Amer., (1907-1986)
Pencil Drawing. ca. 1920's, 12 x 9, signed in pencil lower right, on thin buff wove paper. There are edge losses to the upper right , lower left corners & right center edge of the sheet, a white gouache or ink stain in image at lower left corner, water stain in sky at upper right & top edge, and age toning and soil to margins. Graphite to verso for transfer. Despite the condition issues a charming image with a Rackham like style. One of a small cache of inspired works on paper acquired a few years ago.
