A large Victorian watercolor by famed illustrator Albert Beck Wenzell featuring an Art Nouveau virginal beauty surrounded by putti shown in idyllic purity with nimbus overhead. Wenzell is best known for his 1903 illustrated book "The Passing Show." He also created stunning murals for the New Amsterdam Theater in New York City at the turn of the last century and was a cover artist for leading early 20th century magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post. Wenzell, highly regarded in his day, was president of the Society of American Illustrators.
