ARDIZZONE, Edward (artist). Roseaura's Birthday: an original pen-and-ink drawing.



An original pen-and-ink drawing (10.5 x 15cm), unsigned, with two titles lightly written in pencil in Ardizzone's hand alongside additional printer's marks in both pen and pencil, floated in an ivory acid-free mount, and presented in a handsome gilded wooden frame; just a touch dusted but in very good condition.

This image appears in Italian Peepshow by Eleanor Farjeon, which was first published by Oxford University Press in 1960.
