Offered here is a wonderful original watercolor by Eulalie for Mother Goose, most likely for an edition published by Platt & Munk in 1950 (the label attached to the piece has the title and Platt And Munk copyright notice). The image measures 8 1/4" wide x 9 1/2" high on paper 9x12", signed in the corner and matted. Old Mother Hubbard is pointing to her empty cupboard while her dog looks up to her with a sad expression on its face. Eulalie's work is quite distinctive in the use of bright colors. This piece features the full range of colors and has nice background detail as well. Eulalie Banks had a long and successful career as an illustrator. Although she was born in England in 1895, most of her professional life was spent in California. She died at the age of 104 in 1999.
