Medium Date Framed Size Image Size
Oil Pastel/Ink on Artist Board 1973 22-3/4"H x 16-3/8"W 15-1/4"H x9-1/4"W
From Michael Babcock: Susan began her career in earnest after her ďcoming outĒ show at the Berkeley Arts Festival in Provo Park, Berkeley, CA in September 1971. This show was the beginning of her career as a professional artist. Much, if not most, of her early work had a medieval aspect to it, particularly evident in the clothing of her subjects; clearly exhibited in this piece, which also reveals Susanís love of costuming.

TPG: The fine details in the garment include elements such as birds in flight, medieval pavilion tents, (as seen on the sleeve), and the eye imagery that forms the bodice of the dress. There is a quiet warmth, beauty and dreaminess to this painting.

From Michael Babcock: Susanís attention to detail is also seen in the necklace and hair net. The ivy covered, arched portal provides a framing for the figure. Unicorns were a frequent visitors to her artwork, often as a small figure in the background, as in this piece, where a small reclining unicorn figure on the sleeve provides the title for the painting.

This original work has been re-framed with an antiqued and gilt, custom wood frame. Archival double-matted with top and bottom linen mats. Acid-free materials throughout, and re-glazed with Conservation Clear, Tru-Vue, UV protective glass. Signed Susan Seddon Boulet, bottom-right. Dated MAR 73
