Hush-A-By Baby - Jessie Willcox Smith Art Print
This peaceful (but precarious) scene accompanies the familiar lullaby, "Hush-a-by, baby, on the treetop, When the wind blows the cradle will rock..." from The Little Mother Goose (1912) with illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith. Within this enchanting compilation lie cherished childhood rhymes familiar to all, alongside numerous verses that might have graced the days of yore, resonating with generations of young hearts.
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.
