Jack and the Beanstalk by artist A. Hencke - 20" tall by 16" wide.

This original Offset Lithograph was printed circa 1930s.

"Jack and the Beanstalk" is a classic English fairy tale that tells the story of a young boy named Jack. In the traditional version, Jack is a poor farmer's son who sells his family's cow for a handful of magic beans. His mother, disappointed with the seemingly worthless trade, throws the beans out of the window. Overnight, a gigantic beanstalk grows, reaching up to the sky.

Curious and adventurous, Jack climbs the beanstalk and discovers a magical land in the clouds. There, he encounters a fearsome giant and his treasures. In some versions of the tale, Jack steals from the giant, including a golden harp and a goose that lays golden eggs. Jack manages to escape the giant's pursuit by descending the beanstalk, and he chops it down, causing the giant to fall to his demise.

The story of "Jack and the Beanstalk" is often seen as a tale of bravery, resourcefulness, and the triumph of good over evil. It has been adapted in various forms across literature, theater, and film, making it a timeless and enduring piece of folklore.
