Early Illustrations

After World War II, Sims returned to illustration and painting and created a number of somewhat surreal and meticulous, finely-detailed gouaches. There are approximately 30 images of this kind. The variety of subjects include stylized figures in elaborate costumes, ballet dancers, circus performers and botanical studies.
