21st of December: The Swineherd

21stThis print is taken from The Joyce Mercer Edition of Andersen and Grimm which was published in the 1930s. This picture is from The Swineherd and depicts a prince disguised as swineherd who is wooing the local noblewomen with a musical instrument (possibly a rattle) that he has made. Joyce Mercer brings a gorgeous Art Deco aesthetic to these fairy tales.
