Children Reading - Books & Readers Art Print
Is there a more delightful way to spend an afternoon than nestled with a captivating book? This cozy illustration adorned the cover of Cicely Mary Barker's book At the Window, published by her long-time UK publisher, Blackie & Son. Barker's practice of using real-life models for her paintings imbued her work with a sense of authenticity, and many of these models were drawn from the kindergarten run by her sister, Dorothy.
Cicely Mary Barker (1895-1973) left an indelible mark on the world of art with her enchanting illustrations and delicate botanical creations for magazines, postcards, greeting cards, and children's books.
