❤️ Beautiful print from Old French Fairy Tales 1920 ‘They were three months passing through the forest’
❤️ Sterrett received her first commission at the age of 19 (shortly after she was diagnosed with tuberculosis) from the Penn Publishing Company to illustrate Old French Fairy Tales (1920), a collection of works from the 19th-century French author, Comtesse de Ségur. A year after the publication of Old French Fairy Tales, a new title including commissioned works from Sterrett was presented by the Penn Publishing Company—Tanglewood Tales (1921). From 1923, in failing health, Sterrett was only able to work on projects for short periods of time and as a result, she was able to complete just one further commission prior to her death—her own interpretation of Arabian Nights (1928).
❤️ Virginia Frances Sterrett 1900–1931 was an American artist and illustrator.
