Albert Ernest Kennedy (1883 - 1962) was a prolific illustrator of children's animal books from a family involved in the arts. His younger brother Cecil was a noted painter of landscapes and flowers (his grandfather is said to have worked with Corot.) Printed cloth is a rough medium, yet Kennedy's animals all have well defined individual movement and personality.
