A group of 5 framed silhouettes.
Description: possibly German, with themes from children’s fairy tales cut out and coloured, on card
Height 9inches x Width 6inches. Condition very good, clean crisp.
Although silhouette cutting was primarily an 18/19th century art form, it was adapted during the 20th century to illustrate children’s stories. The interior of the silhouettes are featureless so as to highlight the contours of the figure’s outlines. The coloured silhouettes are quite unique and break from this 18th century tradition.
Would appeal to Collector or specialist who could identify the fairytales where these silhouettes were from.
