|Description: An elegant and detailed illustration titled “A True Pigeon of San Marco” by A. G. Peck (signed lower left), circa 1927. The drawing is done on a 14 5/8” x 10 3/8” piece of illustration board matted in a period wooden frame with the outside dimensions 22” x 18”. Peck painted this for “Wonder Tales of Architecture” by L. Lamprey, published in 1927 by Frederick A. Stokes Company. We offer a first edition copy of the book with purchase of the painting. Item #FA00128.
Anna Gladys Peck (1884-?) was a painter, illustrator, and etcher. She was a pupil of John Henry Twachtman, Willard Metcalf, and Benjamin Clinedinst, and lived in New York.
Condition: Not examined out of frame, fine condition. The piece would do well with fresh archival matting.
