Simply adorable little print of a pair of pals enjoying the rain!

A charming child in bright blue raincoat  and galoshes and the most darling of little dogs take a stroll in the rain in this dearest of pictures. Raindrops splash off the two, amidst the gentle flutter of autumn leaves as they splash along. The dear little dog, in its sweet red coat, has a tiny pink tongue outstretched to catch the drops, while the girl casts a beaming glance towards the viewer. A really captivating little scene, beautifully captured.

This framed print measures approximately 8.5ins. by 6.5ins (21.5cm x 16.5cm) in its wood frame. It is in excellent vintage condition, having been behind glass. The colours are bright and vibrant. To the bottom right corner is the artists name; Mabel Lucie Attwell.

An utterly enchanting and adorable little picture by an acclaimed early twentieth century artist.

 

Mabel Lucie Attwell was a much loved and talented illustrator, with an imaginative and often amusing style, developed through her work on annuals and postcards. She was a household name by the 1920's , by which time no home was complete without an Attwell plaque or money-box biscuit tin. A butchers daughter from London, Attwell showed an early talent for art. She attended St Martin's School of Art (1895-1900), where she met her future husband, painter and illustrator, Harold Earnshaw, though she did not complete her studies. She shunned the formality of the training, embarking instead on a hugely successful career as an illustrator. In 1922 she produced the first of her acclaimed children's annuals. She died on 5 November 1964, in Fowey, Cornwall, where she lived with her son Peter.
