Beatrix Potter, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies. From the first edition (1909) presentation book inscribed by Potter with: "for Lizzie Airey from Miss Potter Third book about the rabbits - April 25. 12".
The Rabbits' Christmas Party - The Departure - Hobbs, in the Dulwich Picture Gallery exhibition catalogue, noted "The attitudes are both rabbit-like and human. Only an artist with an intimate knowledge of anatomy could convey so well both musculature and the texture of fur. Remarkable, as in all Potter's animal drawing, is her observation of ears."
