About: A student of Howard Pyle, Willcox Smith was best known for depicting children in books, magazines and advertisements. This advertisement for a home heating company reinforces two ideas: that little girls are happy while playing the role of mother and housewife, and that the advertised product will create a safe and pleasant home.
