No, no, no! It is I who must thank you for digging up such wonderful old illustrations that really draw me back to my boyhood, and remind me of being read stories of pirates and derring do!
Thank You for sharing the artist...I looked him up and he is the artist. Thank you again ☺
The more you look at the painting the more you are drawn into the minute detail...extraordinary! Thank you so much for sharing! I am learning a lot!
I am fairly confident that this is an illustration by John R Neill.He became a staff artist of the Philadelphia North American newspaper, for which he produced features like the comics strip Toyland, illustrations for the serialization of 'The Fate of a Crown' (a book by L. Frank Baum), Children's Stories That Never Grow Old, and the Sunday comics page 'The Little Journeys of Nip and Tuck' with verses by W.R. Bradford (1909–1910). He was first commissioned to illustrate The Marvelous Land of Oz, the second Oz book L. Frank Baum wrote, published in 1904; The Wonderful Wizard of Oz had been illustrated by W. W. Denslow, with whom Baum argued and lost contact afterward.
