Commentary: In a letter dated March 5, 1924, Mr. Ticknor of Houghton Mifflin Company offers a commission to Schoonover. He writes: “… Mr. Sabatini’s new fall book – and we are much gratified over it – is a Revolutionary story, and will be entitled “The Carolinian.” We want a bang-up jacket for this book as, of course, it will be one of the Six Best Sellers and we should very much like to have you do it. We shall probably be able to send you the manuscript in the course of the next few weeks and we should like to have the picture sometime in May.” Schoonover sent the finished illustration to Houghton Mifflin in December, a bit later than requested, but it was nevertheless published as the cover. (archives, correspondence, day books)

The size of the image for this painting is given as 36″ x 25″, but the canvas size given is 36″ x 30″. In 1948, it was overpainted with #2427. (day books) See #1339s for the sketch.

Provenance: See #2427
