Original watercolor drawing: “White and golden Lizzie stood” for Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti.

London: George G. Harrap & Co., 1933. The original pen and ink and watercolor drawing by Rackham, 14.25 x 10.25 ins., matted and framed, in perfect condition. The original watercolor drawing for the illustration “White and golden Lizzie stood” -- one of Rackham’s most evocative and startling illustrations with every feature that Rackham was famous for -- the amazing detail, half real half fantastic creatures, trees with faces and limbs, a beautiful Pre-Raphaelite girl with golden hair, all composed into a painting of the highest quality, in perfect condition. This picture was purchased from Rackham in 1935 and has never been on the market. It is the original for the book and not a recreation by Rackham (as many of his drawings are) of one of his famous images. (Item Id: RA)
