An original 1955 graphite drawing, SDD Delightsome Lily of Every Lustiness.
A small, sweet drawing of a lily on card, with crayon colouring. Inscribed with quotation by late medieval Scottish poet William Dunbar. Made all the more charming by notes on the reverse, the writer of which recalls of the artist: "How she loved the lilies".
Monogrammed. Dated lower centre.
The board has been bent and consequently shows horizontal creases towards the upper edge.
12.7cm x 7.9cm.
This picture is from a collection of superb 19th-century works associated with the Bath area, possibly once owned by Lady Frances Mary Perring. The collection includes landscapes by Joseph Horlor (1809-1887), as well as drawings by, and drawn for, Lady Perring. An inscription on the verso of one drawing suggests that Horlor was possibly Perring’s drawing teacher.
