LATHROP,DOROTHY. ORIGINAL ART: THE LADY OF THE STARS. This is an ORIGINAL PEN AND INK DRAWING SIGNED BY LATHROP. The image measures 8 1/4 x 10" on a board 13 1/2 x 15" and is matted and framed. The drawing is utterly magnificent and incredibly detailed. It features a small prince raising the veil of a small princess, both of whom are standing on an oriental rug upon a table top. Behind them is a full-sized woman holding up the veil. The background is completely covered with a floral pattern so that the entire surface is finely illustrated. The verso has a label with the title and a caption reading "He raised the veil and gazed upon her countenance for the first time Manuscript p.10". It appeared as a full page illustration on page 198 of the March 1921 issue of Asia Magazine to illustrate a story entitled The Lady of the Stars by Demetra Vaka. A copy of that issue is included. This is a rare and very early Lathrop piece and a very beautiful work of fairy tale art.
