Description

Clare Turlay Newberry wrote and illustrated seventeen children’s books—all but three of which were about cats, and nearly all taken from real life. Four of her books were honored with the Caldecott award. This print, published in 1943 by Harper & Brothers, is a fine reproduction of Newberry’s 1940 watercolor and crayon drawing illustrating Newberry’s Caldecott-winning book, April’s Kittens. It is a formal portrait of a not-formal animal; it is adorable and beautifully executed at the same time.
