1900 Wizard Oz Dorothy Tin Man Scarecrow Ww Denslow Art New Poster Print 1525 For Sale

1900 Wizard Oz Dorothy Tin Man Scarecrow Ww Denslow Art New Poster Print 1525

The2FunAdGuyz offer a new, high quality reproduction art print of one of the original full color plates from the 1900 book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum and illustrated by artist William Wallace Denslow. These rare prints are based on original, lithographs scanned from the early 1900s book. This print is one of the original fifteen images we located and were able to restore to their full original glory. Together these illustrations comprise a unique look at the way the original author and artist, working as a team, visualized the characters and essentially forever changed the style of children’s books. Since there were differences between the original book and the popular movie, these illustrations are a trip back in time to look at the original vision of the author and artist.

As yet another member of our adventurers is introduced, Denslow created a simple, charming image to portray the moment when Dorothy Gale and the Scarecrow heed the moans of the Tin Woodsman. Dorothy, still in a blue polka-dot dress, holds an oil can while the Tin Woodsman smiles—the pain of rusty joints having been relieved. The Tin Man’s axe is portrayed in the lower left corner.

Here is how L. Frank Baum described this scene, in Chapter 5, “The Rescue of the Tin Woodman”

The Scarecrow was now the ruler of the Emerald City, and although he was not a Wizard the people were proud of him. "For," they said, "there is not another city in all the world that is ruled by a stuffed man." And, so far as they knew, they were quite right.

The morning after the balloon had gone up with Oz, the four travelers met in the Throne Room and talked matters over. The Scarecrow sat in the big throne and the others stood respectfully before him.

"We are not so unlucky," said the new ruler, "for this Palace and the Emerald City belong to us, and we can do just as we please. When I remember that a short time ago I was up on a pole in a farmer's cornfield, and that now I am the ruler of this beautiful City, I am quite satisfied with my lot."

"I also," said the Tin Woodman, "am well-pleased with my new heart; and, really, that was the only thing I wished in all the world."

"For my part, I am content in knowing I am as brave as any beast that ever lived, if not braver," said the Lion modestly.

"If Dorothy would only be contented to live in the Emerald City," continued the Scarecrow, "we might all be happy together."

"But I don't want to live here," cried Dorothy. "I want to go to Kansas, and live with Aunt Em and Uncle Henry."

"Well, then, what can be done?" inquired the Woodman.

The Scarecrow decided to think, and he thought so hard that the pins and needles began to stick out of his brains.

Excerpt quoted from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, Published by Geo. M Hill Co., Chicago, IL, 1900

ARTIST: W. (William) W. (Wallace) Denslow.

ARTIST SYMBOL: Each illustration has the well-known Denslow symbol of a cartoon seahorse with the letters “Den.,” (see side illustration) on some portion of the image. W. W. Denslow loved seahorses. He produced cast iron decorative pieces while he was a member of the Roycrofters, an art and crafts community in New York State.


IMPORTANT NOTE: W.W. Denslow created these illustrations as black and white drawings. The color was added only during the actual printing process of the original The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which Denslow and Baum supervised. As a result, the colors are concentrated in large areas with a primary color theme relating to the area of Oz the characters were in. Blue was for Munchkinland. Green was for Emerald City. Yellow was for Winkie country. Red was for Quadling country.

You should also note that each original colored illustration in the book had a line from the book as a caption. However, since these captions were faded, stained or damaged, they were removed so the total focus could be on preserving the size and shape of the image.

HOME DECOR: This charming print will make a great wall decoration for a variety of purposes but especially for a child’s bedroom, play room or a family game room.
