Viola Edith "Brownie" Downing (Australian, 1924-1995) A set of 61 original illustrations many signed and inscribed with titles pen and ink and watercolour 35.5 x 28cm (14 x 11in). and smaller unframed together with two overpainted reproduction prints by the same hand (63) Footnote: "For generations of children and adults in Australia and overseas, Brownie Downing brought out the magic of childhood, the Australian bush and its native inhabitants in an art career spanning several decades. Through her sketches, watercolours, porcelain items and, later, illustrated children's books, she earned a distinct place in Australia's art world...Her success lay in an ability to capture the simple, naive beauty and innocence of children and wildlife in a way that transcended any one culture."
