DescriptionGarth Williams. Illustration #40, Charlotte's Web.
Garth Williams. Original preliminary drawing for illustration #40 (appearing on page 152) of Charlotte's Web, 1952: the Arables and Zuckermans celebrate Wilbur's special award. Ink on paper. Approximately 11.75 x 10.5 inches. Signed in full by Williams at lower right. With two creases running the entire length of the sheet, each running parallel to the left and right sides, apparently made by the artist to decrease the margins by approximately one inch on either side. Williams has also applied some white gouache correction around Fern's head and dress. Spot above circus tent appears to be tiny ink splotch. Else fine. From the Estate of Garth Williams.
