Description

Lullaby, my sparrow.
Cipher, make your mark
in the Book of Being.
Fly into the dark,

passenger of the planet.
Sun and Stars are gone.
The Divine Child find you,
bless you, and roll on.
- Nancy Willard (1936- )


This original pencil drawing is Divine Child Rolls On. It is derived from a circa 1918 photograph by Lewis Wickes Hine (1874-1940). Hine specialized in "social justice" photography mainly depicting the abuses of early 20th century child labor practices. His ground breaking work was instrumental in changing child labor laws. This piece is based on his photograph, Paris Gamin* which was taken while he was documenting the lives of Paris street children.

Beings of a Golden Kind (a line from a Tennessee Williams poem) is a series of drawings based on social justice photographs taken during the early 20th century and Depression era. These photos chronicled the lives of those hardest hit by the adversity of their times. I'm fascinated that the people in these photos, especially the children, show an inner strength and resilience that transcends their circumstances.

The actual image size is approx. 5.5 x 7 inches on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of acid-free Bristol Board. It is signed and ships to you in an acid-free plastic sleeve sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard. It is unmatted and unframed. Watermark does not appear on drawing.

The artist retains all copyright privileges and protections. Sale of artwork does not transfer copyright.

This is my 2nd purchase from this PHENOMENALLY TALENTED artist. The photo doesn't do justice to the detail in this piece. There are many technically skilled artists. But, there are far fewer that can bring life and heart to their work. Her's are pieces you will want to frame and display proudly in your home.

It shipped on time, and arrived looking even better than I'd hoped it might. The artist sent me a nice note and that opened the door to a very helpful and meaningful exchange of information regarding the artwork and its inspiration.
