Brother and Sister at the Beach - Jessie Willcox Smith Art Print
Embarking on a delightful seaside adventure, these charming children (whom we envision as siblings) are bound for a refreshing swim! Illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith, this heartwarming scene graced the cover of the August 1929 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, capturing the essence of carefree beachfront enjoyment. We love how their pails match their swimsuits!
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.
