INSIDE GREETING: Congratulations on your new addition.
"Motherhood was the most wonderful thing in my life," reminisced artist Mabel Lucie Atwell, her words echoing the cherished memories of shared family moments with her husband Harold and their three children. This sentiment shines through in her artistic creations, which consistently radiate the magic of childhood. This serene scene is a poignant example among her numerous works that beautifully capture the essence of deep familial bonds and affection. See this image as an art print!
Mabel Lucie Attwell (1879-1964) is celebrated for her endearing illustrations of cute and cuddly children, which found their home in children's stories, fairy tales, and nursery rhymes. Notably, The Boo Boos, chubby fairies introduced in 1921, became beloved characters. Attwell's commercial prowess flourished, with her delightful portrayals gracing children's books, postcards, ads, figurines, and even tea sets! Like many wildly successful commercial artists, she enjoyed immense popularity with general audiences, but her work often faced skepticism from art critics of her time. Nevertheless, Attwell's legacy is deeply ingrained in the hearts of those who continue to find joy in her endearing illustrations that radiate the essence of childhood.
