Notes

An original watercolour for In Powder and Crinoline, signed and dated "Kay Nielsen 1913" in the lower left corner. Nielsen produced 26 watercolours for In Powder and Crinoline to illustrate seven fairy tales chosen by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. This watercolour illustrates the story, "Felicia or The Pot of Pinks".
"Nielsen shows in his development a fancy so delicate and an outlook so original that no charge of plagiarism can be brought against him. His colour work is delicate and suggestive rather than forceful. Very lovely in its faint blues and greens with tones of peach is the illustration plate 21 i.e. this painting where the high folly, the love birds and the blossom testify to the legacy of Japan." (Keith Nicholson, Kay Nielsen, 1975).
