This is the print of a sketch by famous children's book illustrator Kurt Weise. It measures 8"x 10" and has some water damage. Kurt Wiese, one of the most prolific illustrators known in the field of American children’s literature, illustrated over three hundred books during a highly respected career that spanned more than four decades. Best known for having illustrated Marjorie Flack’s Story about Ping (1933) and Claire Huchet Bishop’s timeless retelling of a Chinese folktale, Five Chinese Brothers (1938), Kurt Wiese was a versatile artist who impart­ed vitality, emotion, and a keen design sense to the vari­ety of media in which he worked. Published in the late 1920s and early 1930s, Wiese’s first books were among the titles that established the genesis of the American picture book. Wiese worked for the three preeminent juvenile book editors of the time, Louise Seaman of Macmillan, May Massee of Double­day, and Ernestine Evans of Coward-McCann.
