This fine watercolour was developed by the artist from his original ink drawing for the title-page of Little Brother & Little Sister and other tales by the Brothers Grimm, first published by Constable in 1917.
The title-page shows Little Brother seated in the arms of a sinister tree and Little Sister in a similar tree with spectacles. The title was printed in the book wihtin a white space above the faces of the trees. Here the trees are complete with additional twigs and leaves. Rackham has also added a mountain range in the background and grass in the foreground. A cloudy sky contributes depth to an extremely fine watercolour, hitherto unknown in this completed and coloured state.
