I am sure many of you are familiar with this artist's work even though to some her name may not be a household word. Bessie Pease Gutmann has delighted people with her beautiful and soft quality works of children. Here are just a few samplings of her art.

Her first work of illustration was the children's book was A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1905. One of her more famous illustrations was the ones in the 1907 version of Carroll Lewis's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,
