More Graham Gallery Art

In 1974, Edward Gorey had the first of two gallery exhibitions at the Graham Gallery in New York City (see my postings from June 30, July 3 & 6, 2009, and March 9, 2010). A recent catalog from Bromer Booksellers features another piece of art from this exhibition.
Listed in the 1974 exhibition catalog as item #3, Cell, this wonderful image shows a two part tableau with a child being (presumably) carried away by a flying creature. I have had the pleasure of viewing this piece in person, and the detailing and colors are quite remarkable.

This is gorgeous and marvelously morbid!
