Edward Eggleston
Nymph and the Frog

1930s

About

Enchantment is a large and important painting by Edward Eggleston, which was published by the American Art Works Calendar Company in the early 1930s. The subject of this playful scene is a nude water nymph bending over to kiss a little frog (sure to soon become a prince). The scene is captured in a Maxfield Parrish-like electric blue color scheme. Painting is in good condition and has been relined and is handsomely framed in a wide profile gold wood gallery frame. This is a remarkable work of art and one of the finest surviving Eggleston paintings to come on the market. In part as an escapist response to the Great Depression, the 1930s saw a huge trend of calendar art featuring exotic fantasy-themed, ethereal and breezy images of harem attired pin-up girls, and Egyptian goddesses, and mythical nudes. In 1931, Maxfield Parrish famously declared "I am done with girls on rocks", leaving a void for his immensely popular nude fantasy maiden works of the 1920s. Edward Eggleston -- a gifted and well-established artist in his own right -- seems to have taken that declaration as direct inspiration for much of his calendar work. Eggleston is best remembered today for his Atlantic City Resort advertising posters of the 1930s which all featured stylized opulent bathing beauty pin-up girls. Framed dimensions: 32.5" x 42.5" Image dimensions: 28.13" x 38.13"
