The majority of Stanley's illustrations were produced for the weekly series of children's stories written by Min and published in The South Wales EVening Post from the late 1940's to the mid 1960's.
In 1960 Derek Gardner commissioned Stanley to produce a series of illustrations for The Dictionary of Art and Artists to be published by Dennis Dobson, for which this study might have been intended.
