A timeless childhood joy – peering into the enchanting world of a toyshop's window display during the holiday season. This heartwarming scene was artfully crafted by the talented artist Hildegard Woodward and graced the December 1927 cover of House Beautiful. Woodward's evocative illustration captures the innocence and wonder of children as they dream and delight in the treasures that await them on Christmas morning. It's a nostalgic glimpse into the pure magic of the season. See this image as an art print!

Hildegard Woodward (1898-1977) was a celebrated American author and illustrator, notable for her significant contributions to children's literature. Her work earned her two Caldecott Honor awards for the books Roger and the Fox (1948) and The Wild Birthday Cake (1950). Her artistic talents encompassed watercolor and oil paintings, and she also excelled as a children's portrait artist. Notably, Woodward's determination and artistic passion persisted even after she began losing her sight in the 1960s. She developed an innovative method of "painting by touch," allowing her to continue creating art.
