Jessie Wilcox Smith is my all time fav artist! The girl, "Little Grains of Sand" is my top favorite picture! So cool you showed these!
Thanks!

Love Jessie Wilcox Smith...I had some of her prints framed in my daughter's nursery...17 years ago!!! I also love Eloise Wilkin...she did a number of illustrations for Golden Books...both of these ladies capture life when it was so much more "simply"...and seemingly "right"...

My MIL has a picture by her, I think called "My Kitten"...a little girl holding a black cat. I've always loved that picture.

This was the first time I have see other Jessie pictures and they are wonderful!

I adore her work. So innocent and pure. Have you seen the work of Henriette Willibeek LeMair? Very similar in feel and just as beautiful. These two women are among my favorite artists.

Oh, I agree! I have collected cards from her prints & have framed them & have had them for years. I never tire of them. Classics - absolutely adorable classics.

Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures! The one of the girl with a pink bow in her hair on the beach is so precious--I've never seen it before! I love Jessie Wilcox Smith's art--as others have said, it certainly brings to mind the joys of an old-fashioned childhood.
