A large scale and evocative interior story illustration by Herbert Morton Stoops; likely commissioned for Collier’s or Cosmopolitan magazine, both of for which the artist was a frequent contributor. A briskly composed hearth scene with broad brush strokes that ultimately creates a wonderful sense of urgency and movement. Stoops painted in a style much like Dean Cornwell and Howard Pyle, the artist has a high water mark at auction of just under $11,000.00 in 2001.
