Ref: Quinto60sDWBig78 (Click for LARGE picture)

This is the original Watercolour painting by Nadir Quinto.

Dick Whittington and His Cat is the name of English folklore surrounding the real-life Richard Whittington (c. 1354 - 1423), wealthy merchant and thrice Lord Mayor of London, telling a story of how he supposedly escaped his poverty-stricken childhood and made his fortune thanks to the ratting abilities of his cat.

From a colourful adaptation of the legend of Dick Whittington painted the great children's illustrator Nadir Quinto. Source unknown but probably Once Upon A Time or a sister publication about 1970. Note there is a crease diagonally across the head of the pirate in the bottom right hand corner; price reflects this.
