Once Upon a Time-Clara Burd 1873-1933

CLARA M. BURD 1873-1933
Children's illustrator, designer of stained glass. Studied in Paris.

Though there is a lot of sites with her book illustrations and how so many people loved her work, I can't seem to find a true bio on her. No wikipedia? The above is about it. There are a lot of images in Google...she seems to have illustrated almost every children's book of her time...mainly "Little Women"

If you can find more information,,,please let us know. She was born in New Jersey, I believe.

Enjoy her work and copy or be inspired...more images on Google.

Re: Once Upon a Time-Clara Burd 1873-1933

I haven't had time to look in depth at Clara either. I did manage a watercolour of a child...from a wikimedia photo, and in my own style. I'll post it here anyways to show I am getting around to looking at painting children!!



I think its around 5 by 3.5 ins on wc paper.
