These prints are made at our location in Seattle, WA. They have a thick, white backing board and are sealed in clear bags. Each is suitable for framing at 11 inches x 14 inches or can be used as is for wall display. Our goal is to bring back to life these wonderful illustrations from old-fashioned, children's books and from early advertising art.
Millicent Sowerby (1878-1967) grew up in an artistic family. Her father, J.G. - a member of the Sowerby glassmaking dynasty - was a designer and illustrator and a member of the Aesthetic Movement. She illustrated many books as a team with her sister Githa, a writer. Her illustrations of children and fairies have a unique sweetness, as in this lovely painting of children playing in an idealized garden.
