Peake, Mervyn (1911 – 1968)
A charming, detailed original ink drawing by Mervyn Peake. The artist draws a figure riding a horse in a countryside setting. Signed and dated 1936. He adds a message on the other side of the page, ‘We all send good wishes to Jean, hoping she will have a Happy Xmas and New Year 1937’. Page size 11″ X 7.25″ overall. A central vertical fold, where the page was once folded to form a card.
In fine condition. Scarce and highly desirable in this format.
Together with a detailed letter of provenance, explaining the relationship between Jean Cope and Peake.
