A lyrical Golden Age of Illustration dated 1921 oil on canvas painting by Edwin John Prittie for The Mary Frances Story Book - a children's book by Jane Eayre Fryer published by John C. Winston. In this whimsical lush rendering a child with a fishing net joists with a red dragon in a fantasy-scape surround with an enchanted magical castle atop the far away hill. Painting has been recently cleaned and is in a fine state of conservation, and the nicest example we have seen by this prolific artist and illustrator. Handsomely framed in a wide profile arts & crafts aesthetic gold gallery frame.
