[New York?]: 1926. Single sheet with two-color linoleum block print, image measures 4 x 4 inches and is signed and dated in pencil. Matted, in perfect condition. Lenski (1893-1974) was a prolific artist and this is one of her earlier pieces. It is not in Cotsen who lists a dozen or so of her titles, none before 1927. We found no record of Lenski illustration Grimm so perhaps this was a trial print for a book never created. “For over fifty years Lois Lenski pursued her professional career as an illustrator and author of books for children. During that time she illustrated some fifty books for other authors, and wrote and illustrated nearly 100 of her own books. Lenski's writing included picture books and stories for very young children as well as intermediate works for older children and young adults. Although she wrote primarily prose, Lenski also published books of poetry, songs and plays for children.” (Wikipedia, which has a long article on her life and work.) (Item Id: 102829)
