"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
aaaaah. Beatrix Potter. I have tucked away safely some very early books of a few titles - my favorite being Miss Tiggywinkle. Who knew I'd grow up loving to iron? But even as a kid I loved the lovingly portrayed scenes. Guess you know what I'll be reading tonight!
...and please don't forget her contributions to natural sciences! She was a truly amazing woman.Dusty
So true, here is a link:http://www.rom.on.ca/exhibits/peterrabbit/peterrabbit_naturalworld.php
Thanks for the year she did this piece! I have "dated" my dollhouse to the 1904-1905 span, so I could actually use this picture in my "ladie's sunroom"!Guess I'll have to go back to all my Potter books also. Need I say that "Tale of Two Bad Mice" is probably one of my favorites?
Didn't I read somewhere where her whole "start" as a book illustrator began with some letters to a relative with drawings included?This piece is beautiful!
That is true.
