I found this pastel in a small gallery in San Carlos, CA in the mid 1980s. I believe the signature is of Alexander Sharpe Ross - an east coast illustrator. I am not positive but some samples of his signature look almost identical
Deems Taylor referred to in the text was a Music critic and composer (of Disney - Fantasia fame). His first widely recognized composition was the orchestral suite Through the Looking Glass (1919, rev. 1922).
Perhaps this was a concept for a reissue cover??
