About

A dated 1938 and signed original mixed medium illustration by the renown American illustrator Winold Reiss used as a book plate (this appeared on page 7 of an as-of-yet unknown title) with a caption that reads, "I was so bewildered that I ran back a few yards..." Stylistically, this piece resembles a woodcut but is a large original pen and ink drawing with white gouache highlights. In the scene, an early settler in Pilgrim attire comes across a magical maiden emerging from the light in an enchanted forest. Winold Reiss was a German American muralist and illustrator that is best remembered for his portraits of the Blackfoot Indian tribe. His work was so revered by the tribe that when he died his ashes were spread across sacred burial grounds. Measures 13" x 16.5"
