Carton Moore Park drawing Dog

Carton Moore Park: Retriever dog. Grisaille. 47.5 x 37cms (c. 19 x 10.5 inches). Signed dated  & 1900, and in the margin ‘Retriever’. Creases to the lower left hand corner. Very much in the style of his Alphabet of Animals, published the same year by Blackie. 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.
