The Art Of Lucy Fitch Perkins

Lucy Fitch Perkins (1865-1937) was a prolific illustrator of early 20th century children’s books. She is best known for her Twins series, but some of her most beautiful illustrations appeared in now-obscure fairy tale collections. Here’s a sampling of her artwork that heretofore hasn’t been seen on the web.
