A Japanese Toy In Mayo by Jack B. Yeats (1912)

This charming illustration by Jack B. Yeats is one of many to be found in his book of illustrations Life In The West Of Ireland (1912) which can be accessed in its entirely at the Villanova University Digital Library here. The illustrations vary in style quite a bit from jovial group scenes that remind me a bit of the Giles cartoons of a later era to more serious studies and landscapes. Sure have a look yourself, I doubt you'll regret it.
