ALBERT RUTHERSTON [Albert Rothenstein] (1881-1953)

"The Awakening."

Illustration published in The Children's Blue Bird by Georgette Leblanc, (London: Methuen, 1913.) 160 x 215 mm; 6 1/4x8 1/2 inches. Ink and watercolor. Signed and dated "Albert R. 1916." Mounted to board and matte, with contemporary descriptive label mounted to verso.
Rutherston was the brother of the English painter, William Rothenstein, but changed his name. His drawings often foreshadow surrealism, which led to a cult following in the UK. They remain scarce on the market.
