1965This is the original Gouache painting by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone.
This beautiful painting Titled 'The Shadow' was painted by the twins Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone to illustrate a Native American folk tale. Published in Finding Out magazine and subsequently in Roger Lancelyn Green's rare book 'Folk Tales of The World', this is a stunning example of their work.
The twins have captured the movement of wind in the air beautifully, and the whimsical call the Native American is almost audible. The delicately painted settlement in the background beckons subtly in it's pale tones.
This is a wonderful example of the twin's work.Click for larger image ...
