1924 / G. Cecere

1_21_Brandeis.jpg

A pictorial-style bookplate in black ink on mottled ivory paper. The central image is of a standing man and woman in ancient Greek clothing. The man is on the left and holds a harp. There is a pegasus behind them, a small structure with a pile of books between them, and a small shrub to the right. In the distance is the Parthenon. Beneath this image is the name Fanny Brandeis above a short segment of musical notation. On either side is a pair of fish. Surrounding the whole image is a simple border with stylized flowers.
