ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATION FOR BABAR’S FRENCH LESSONS (Les Leçons de Français de Babar.) Stock code: 7558
Watercolour and ink drawing on heavy paper. Paper size 32.5 x 25 cm. Sellotape residue to edges, one piece partially coming into the image. Mounted, framed and glazed. Published twice, the first time in 1963 to illustrate Lesson 7 of Brunhoff’s book “Babar’s French Lessons”, The Old Lady is Cooking. In 1966 the artist repainted the sugar and rice flour packet labels and attached them over the original French so that the image could be used in “Je Parle Espagnol avec Babar” (Babar's Spanish Lessons).
