Carton Moore Park drawing Pigs

Carton Moore Park: Pigs. Grisaille. 47.5 x 37cms (c. 19 x 10.5 inches). Signed & dated (18)99, and in the margin Christmas 1899. 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.
