21437 Playtime Whitman2932 Mallet ill

Playtime.

Cute details in these paintings of round faced children, somewhat like Chloe Preston's children but without that wild self-confidence. In view of the mouths and the three upright eyelashes, these paintings are almost certainly by Beatrice Fox Mallet, an English artist who married the French humorist artist Herve Mallet in 1919. Little stories on each page in attractive calligraphy tell of the children's daily occupations: reading, gardening, blowing bubbles.
