INSIDE GREETING: You're all the proof I need that life is good.

Harry Watrous loved to depict women alongside black birds with a slightly spooky vibe. In 1913, he painted this portrayal of interspecies friends and titled the piece The Chatterers. Send it to a friend you love to chit-chat with! See this image on a card with a blank interior!

Harry Willson Watrous (1857–1940) was an American artist with a diverse oeuvre spanning genre scenes, landscapes, portraits, and religious subjects. Born in San Francisco to a family of means, he received a privileged upbringing in New York City and studied art in France. Initially known for his meticulously detailed genre paintings reminiscent of European masters, he transitioned to larger-scale works. This period marked a shift towards enigmatic portrayals of women, characterized by psychological depth and symbolic undertones. Notably, his 1913 painting, The Drop Sinister, challenged societal norms by depicting an American interracial family, sparking widespread discussion and controversy. He was an active member of the National Academy of Design, advocating for traditional artistic values amidst the rise of Modernism. His legacy extends beyond his artwork, evidenced by his remarkable collection of over 100 artists' palettes, signed by each artist.
