Carton Moore Park drawing Horse

Carton Moore Park: Horse. Grisaille. 47.5 x 37cms (c. 19 x 10.5 inches). Signed & dated (18)99. Creases to the lower left hand corner, just affecting image. Very much in the style of his Alphabet of Animals, published the same year by Blackie – a similar design appears on the book cover. Park (I have seen his name spelt Moore-Park & Moorepark) was a Glasgow artist who illustrated several books around the turn of the century. His illustrations always have a quirky outlook. I have written an article on him in Studies in Illustration no. 59 published by the Imaginative Book Illustration Society.
