Preliminary pencil and watercolour drawing for 'Treasure Island' by Dulac, n.d. but circa 1927, mounted, framed and glazed, approximately 175mm x 220mm in size, with the image 110mm x 150mm. This one is 'Black Dog Disappears', inscribed 'to Marius Winslow from Edmund Dulac' to bottom left hand corner. Dulac's Treasure Island was published in 1927, with Hughey noting that the twelve watercolours in the book, "show a new Dulac style. Here he uses pale misty colours and creates little miniature gems of 18th century scenes ... The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting. He himself liked these illustrations best of all of his work" (Hughey, Edmund Dulac - His Book Illustrations: A Bibliography)
