ITEM: You are offerding on a vintage antique early 20th century very surreal original pen & ink illustration that was used as a Menu cover for an unknown (but cutting edge) restaurant. This features a Lewis Carroll inspired scene that shows a belle epoque dandy couple who just happen to be walking fish examining the scenery as a pipe smoking turtle sits behind them in this wonderfully conceived and executed drawing with stipple work and avant garde style. An art nouveau illustration with remarkable style.
This is framed in a simple wood frame with double matting, full framed piece measures 13 1/2" x 17 1/2" and the artwork itself measures 8" x 12 1/2" --
100% guaranteed original and vintage as always from Grapefruit Moon Gallery.
CONDITION: In very nice condition with a little wear and the frame is clean, though unremarkable, this is a very nice find and could be displayed as is or reframed to bring out its incredibly decadent art nouveau and cartoonish charm.
