SEARLE, RONALD
Teen Age Belge (1).
For Holiday Magazine, November 1953, Ruth McKenney The Difficult Age p. 14. London: 1953. Original drawing, 6 3/8 x 13 1/4 inches (16 x 9 cm) on larger sheet, sepia ink pen and wash over graphite outlines on illustration board; signed "RS" (l.c.), titled by the artist at the head, the verso with his London W2 stamp (twice). Reproduction marks in pencil in margins, taped to the mat with old masking tape verso, framed,

Ruth McKenney was at this time at the height of her success, following her book My Sister Eileen, and while we have not viewed the issue of the publication in question (this was done for Holiday Magazine, an American periodical for which Searle did a great deal of excellent work), her contribution was clearly well illustrated by Searle.
