Little Girl Picking Daisies - Jessie Willcox Smith Art Print
In this delightful scene, a young girl gathers an armful of springtime daisies, brought to life through the artistry of Jessie Willcox Smith on the May 1928 cover of Good Housekeeping magazine. The accompanying headline proudly announces "Interior Decorating Pages in Full Color" within its pages, a noteworthy feature in an era when magazines typically combined black and white with bursts of color.
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.
