Starfish (Original)

Starfish (Original) by Animals at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: 20thStarfish (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: 20th Century unidentified artist
Medium: Gouache on Board
Size: 9" x 12" (240mm x 300mm)
Date: 1928

This is the unique original Gouache painting by 20th Century unidentified artist.

An interesting page originally painted for inclusion in I See All: The World's First Picture Encyclopaedia .With 100,000 Pictures Of People Places and Things and an Atlas of Every Country in the World. This was a weekly part-work magazine that became a five volume encyclopaedia edited by Arthur Mee. It was published by Amalgamated Press between 1928-1930. Note the discoloration in the central 1/3rd of the board. This is from glue when four starfish were omitted when the art board was reused - upside down for the Look and Learn Wonders of Nature book judging from the printers notes on the border.

The artist is possibly James Green who provided fish illustrations for the same publication.
