A beautiful gouache illustration by legendary English illustrator Ron Embleton. An elegant lady sitting on a hassock examines a gold purse. Near her is a table with a sewing basket. This is a panel from a serialized fairy tale, "The Three Soldiers," which Embleton illustrated for the magazine Once Upon a Time (Issue #83, 12 September 1970). The painting demonstrates Embleton's bright color and his mastery of delicate brushwork.
Painted on medium weight board measuring 9" high x 7.4" wide. A strip of tape on the top of the page and printer's instructions at the bottom are set well away from the image, making it easy to mat and frame. Marked in pencil: "S/S Page 7 The Three Soldiers."
