Cousin Lucy

Paul Gray


Wood engraving by the Dalziels

6 ½ x 4¾ inches

Illustration for ‘L. F’s’ ‘Cousin Lucy’,The Quiver 1 (1866): p.681.

An interesting composition in which the enclosed, contemplative characters are framed by Nature. Gray’s designs are often asymmetrical but convey a sense of harmony in their subtle balancing of forms.
