Angels and Animals - Christmas Greeting Card
This heartwarming nativity scene by Margaret Tarrant portrays angels and animals coming together in joyous celebration of the birth of Baby Jesus. Among Tarrant's extensive collection of scenes from Jesus' life and religious Christmas imagery, this illustration was initially created to accompany a 1940 collection of holiday poems and stories. These beloved illustrations have since graced the pages of numerous books, postcards, and calendars, and we are thrilled to continue this tradition with our heartfelt greeting card, sharing the warmth and meaning of this timeless scene.

Margaret Tarrant (1888-1959) was a distinguished English artist, nurtured in an artistic milieu as the daughter of Percy Tarrant. Her creative journey began with the illustration of Christmas cards, postcards, and calendars, setting the stage for her remarkable career. However, it was her enchanting book illustrations that truly catapulted her to fame. She's perhaps best known for her exquisite work on The Water Babies (1908), where her artistic prowess breathed life into the story's magical world. Her artistic legacy is defined by her unique ability to transport viewers to a world where fairies, fantasy, and the wonders of childhood reign supreme.
