An unhappy little girl sits dejectedly on a step while a small bird in a nearby bush, covered in green leaves, keeps her company. The little girl is dressed in gray with a grey bonnet and a white over-dress. She’s wearing little ballet-like shoes over white tights.
Holly Berries is a book from 1881 which is overflowing with wonderful illustrations by the talented artist Ida Waugh (d.1919).
Ida Waugh is one of the most well-represented of the many illustrators with works on Reusable Art. She is most well-remembered for her drawings of children but there’s also plenty of flowers and other drawings of hers to enjoy as well.
