The compassion and affection for children that Jessie Wilcox-Smith expressed in her art emerged when she was a kindergarten teacher. Coerced into taking an art class that a relative was teaching, Wilcox-Smith was 20 when she accidentally discovered her artistic talent. Pursuing a formal art education, she went on to illustrate ads for “Ladies Home Journal.” Wholesome and sensitive, her images graced children’s books, magazine covers and ads for Cream of Wheat, Campbell’s Soup, the Red Cross and Ivory Soap.

This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
