Four Illustrations for Stuart Little by Garth Williams, with Original Color by Rosemary Wells[Garth Williams.] Rosemary Wells. Four Illustrations by Garth Williams for Stuart Little, With Original Application of Watercolor by Rosemary Wells. Each illustration is on stiff watercolor paper and is signed by Rosemary Wells. Measurements range from approximately 6.75 x 7.25 inches to 9.25 x 11.25 inches. All generally fine.
Garth Williams' beloved illustrations for E. B. White's classic Stuart Little (1945) were updated and colorized by popular children's book author and illustrator Rosemary Wells in 1999. This delightful reimagining of Williams' original black and white drawings - authorized by the estate of Garth Williams - is the first appearance of these illustrations in color.
Ms. Wells' thoughts on this project can be found in the publisher's blurb that appeared in the full-color edition of Charlotte's Web (to which she had prevoulsy contributed colorized illustrations): "Rosemary Wells, author and illustrator of almost eighty books, considers Garth Williams one of the true geniuses of twentieth-century book illustration and feels that had he had today's technology available, he would have chosen to do the illustrations for Charlotte's Web in full color. Applying a very simple palette befitting the story's setting, Ms. Wells hopes her results would have pleased Garth Williams."
This wonderful collection of original art, each signed by Rosemary Wells and with her hand-applied watercolor, is as much a testament to her talent and vision as it is to that of the legendary Garth Williams.
