Little Girls In Hammock - Friendship Greeting Card
INSIDE GREETING: Let's Get Together.
A cute cuddle on a hammock with a kitty by Jessie Willcox Smith! Originally gracing the cover of Good Housekeeping magazine's July 1930 edition, the illustration captures the essence of companionship and comfort. Established in May 1885 in Holyoke, Massachusetts, the magazine embarked on a noble quest to achieve household excellence, as epitomized by its motto: "to produce and perpetuate perfection—or as near unto perfection as may be attained in the household." This card achieves perfection in greeting cards!
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.
