CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: THE WIZARD'S DAUGHTER. Offered here is a fine watercolor of an eagle about to pounce on a fish. It is used as a partial page illustration in the Wizard's Daughter, a Viking legend retold by Conover and published by Little Brown and Company in 1984. The image measures 3" wide x 4 1/2" signed. The fish is actually a young man put under a spell by the evil Wizard. It is a striking image with tremendous detail. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books.
