Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The essence of Victorian childhood is exhibited in the idealized children of Catherine Greenaway’s work.  Her dreamy little figures seem almost melancholy as they prance through the English countryside unaware of time or place.  Their outfits of frilly smocks, mob caps and sunbonnets seem Regency in appearance but are none-the-less the figments of Miss Greenaway’s girlish imagination.  They are an outcome of her unwillingness to leave childhood behind.
