Hi Thom,
This is a beautiful use of color, composition, and light. Do you know what story this comes from?

Hi Annie--unfortunately, I don't. It's a small framed print (probably a loose leaf from the book) that I've had for years, with the artist's name and date inscribed on the back.

I've researched the artist just a little bit, and I think this is from When the Sandman Comes, 1916. If I find out more, I'll let you know. I'd love to see the rest of the illustrations. I've come across one, but not a good copy in high resolution.
