About: Jessie Willcox Smith specialized in childhood portraits. She illustrated every cover of Good Housekeeping magazine from 1918 to 1933 with images of children. One writer explained their popularity by noting that that her young subjects "don't look noisy,...are unusually wholesome...and seem only sufficiently naughty to be entertaining.”
