    Thomas Stothard. Original Art. London: Circa 1780-1810. Five Original Drawings by Stothard. All art signed by Stothard except for the watercolor.

    Five original pencil, ink, colored drawings. All measures approximate. 1. Pencil and ink drawing of a well-dressed couple taking a walk with a sheep in the background (3.25 x 4.25 inches). 2. Pen and ink of two women and a man by a tree with another man in the background, appears to be for a book illustration with pencil text beneath it. (Image 2.75 x 2.75 inches, text 4.5 x .5 inches). 3. Mythical illustration in red pencil and ink with a goddess and cherub angle (3 x 4.5 inches). 4. Watercolor cherub angel leaning against an empty decorated oval, perhaps to be used as a book heading or vignette (3.5 x 4.5 inches). 5. Two pen and ink ovals, man and woman with a walking stick and dog (2.5 x 3.75 inches each). Each work is mounted and matted.

    Some foxing to illustrations, heaviest on the "goddess and cherub" illustration. A very good collection of artwork. From the Krown and Spellman collection.

    Thomas Stothard (1755-1834), member of the Royal Academy. Painter, designer, and illustrator best known for his graceful work in book illustration, including editions of Robinson Crusoe, Pilgrim's Progress, Vicar of Wakefield, and the works of Shakespeare, Byron and Milton. Stothard was considered one of the most successful illustrators of his day. From 1778, his work was exhibited annually at the Royal Academy, where he became librarian in 1810.
