Girl Looking In Garden - Birthday Greeting Card
INSIDE GREETING: You are as young as your dreams. Happy Birthday!
Yet another endearing illustration graces the pages of a book beautifully adorned by Jessie Willcox Smith's artistic touch. Serving as the cover image for the 1935 publication A Very Little Child's Book of Stories by Ada M. Skinner and Eleanor L. Skinner (presumably sisters), this depiction adds to Smith's legacy of enchanting visual storytelling! 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.
