''The Little Sea Maid''
Dancing over the floor as
no one has yet danced
Design by Harry Clarke
This illustration was among at least 16 colour designs prepared by Clarke to accompany the collection of classic works
published in the 1916 Edition of Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen.
It was the sole colour illustration to accompany the tale "The Little Sea Maid" and is associated with the following text:
Dancing over the floor as no one has yet danced.
Clarke's illustration is a light, yet detailed, depiction of the Andersen's little mermaid enjoying her time in human form.
