Edward Laning
Neried

1948

$400

About

Edward Laning was a master draughtsman. This ink and watercolor drawing is of one of the 50-odd daughters of the ancient Greek sea god Nereus and his wife Doris. Apparently these young women spent their time swimming in the Mediterranean or sunbathing on the rocks. Laning's Neried is catching a ride with an obliging dragon. Signed and dated in ink. Dimensions are for the drawn image.

    First of all there is old tape at the top edge. It is also light-struck. But there's another issue. Is has blue staining - maybe from an artist's portfolio that got wet? Or was the artist experimenting with blue paint to make an under-water scene?
