Folkard (Charles, 1878-1963). Yet You Balance an Eel on the End of Your Nose, pen, ink and watercolour, depicting a stout bewigged gentleman on a river bank, wearing a floral waistcoat, brown breeches, a blue frock coat, and buckled shoes, holding a fishing rod in his left hand, and looking skywards with an eel balanced on his nose, with a willow creel on the ground beside and two jumping frog onlookers, signed lower left within cartouche, pencilled inscription on verso (in another hand), 21 x 16 cm (8.25 x 6.25 ins), mounted (mount obscuring signature) (Qty: 1) Provenance: From the artist's studio and thence by descent. Charles Folkard produced a similar illustration - one of twelve drawings commissioned - for Songs for Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass first published by A. & C. Black in 1921. The version in the published book differs substantially from that offered here, the gentleman being positioned on a punt in the river and accompanied by a youth fishing, captioned: '"You are old," said the youth; "one would hardly suppose that your eye was as steady as ever."
