Armload of Birthday Wishes - Birthday Greeting Card
INSIDE GREETING: An armload of beautiful wishes on your birthday.
A cherished autumnal image, this sweet little girl cradling an armful of fall foliage has become one of our most beloved representations of the season. Conjured by the skilled hand of Jessie Willcox Smith, the illustration graced the pages of the October 1926 edition of Good Housekeeping magazine. Its timeless charm continues to captivate us, making it a perfect card for a fall birthday! See this image as an art print!
Jessie Willcox Smith (1863-1935), a cherished name at Laughing Elephant, wields a remarkable artistic legacy. Mentored by Howard Pyle, an illustrious influence, she emerged as a formidable woman artist in the Golden Age of Illustration, defying norms in a male-dominated realm—she was among the highest-paid illustrators of her time! Beyond canvas, she left her mark on nearly 200 Good Housekeeping magazine covers, while also gracing classic children's books and creating artistic ads for iconic brands like Ivory Soap and Kodak. Sensitivity to human experience defined her work, and her idealized images endure as motherhood and childhood archetypes.
