About: Kate Greenaway, best known for her children's book illustrations, was born on the eve of the expansion of the Victorian book and magazine market, a circumstance that provided a myriad of new economic opportunities, particularly for the female artist. Her illustrations are sweet, quaint, sometimes saccharine, and strongly influenced by those of her contemporary Walter Crane. It is not known what, if any text this image accompanied.
