Sulamith Wulfing - Christmas Angel

Sulamith Wulfing

This exquisitely subtle illustration is by the German artist Sulamith Wulfing who featured in one of my earlier posts this year.  This work is both signed and dated -1931.  I found the inclusion of the date interesting as this is another illustration I think is timeless - without knowing when it was painted I would probably have placed it much later, most likely during the era of my own childhood. I love the way the angel's hair merges with the bauble she is sitting in to become part of the decoration.  (I'm sorry a bit of the side is cut off but I couldn't fit this picture into my scanner.)

I'd like to wish everyone who reads this a Very Happy and Blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year.         

Please forgive me as well if I don't visit or post anything for the next little while.  Besides Christmas Day, St Stephen's Day (what the 26th is called here) and New Year's Day I'm working throughout the whole festive season and I'm feeling a bit exhausted already - so I'm going to take a bit of my own advice from a couple of week's ago and take a break!

I'll be back in Bloggyland again in the New Year.  See you then.

You're right about that gorgeous illustration Sharon - it could've been drawn yesterday, not over 70 years ago!
I hope you have a lovely Christmas Sharon, and that you manage to make the moost of what little time you do have off work.
I can't wait for you to open my Christmas present!
Here's to a great 2013, merry, merry my bloggy friend x

This is a particularly nice drawing, it's right up my street in terms of aesthetic appeal, it's nice to see in the comments that there's a broader appreciation of this kind of work. There are two thing things that fascinate all artist, I think, the human figure and (for some bizarre reason) drapery. This drawing is a beautiful study of both and really butters my biscuit, I absolutely love it.

Anyway I hope you have a Merry Xmas, I looking forward to your new posts. good luck for the new year too.
