Art work dated 1908 by Mary Sigsbee Ker. She did some wonderful childrens postcards I love her works and hope you enjoy this one .
I am sorry I put my name on it but some of my posts are showing up on peoples websites not associated with CW site so just to protect it to this site I marked it .
An Artist, Mary Ellen was born in New Orleans and was the daughter of Charles D. Sigsbee, Captain of the USS Maine. Between 1902-1917, she painted under the names Mary Ellen Sigsbee and Mary Sigsbee Ker. She attended the Arts Students League and was a student of illustrator Howard Pyle. She lived both in Greenwich Village and in Paris, and later settled in Woodstork, New York. Her works often featured children and women, in both poverty and well-to-do scenarios. She supported women's suffrage, and made posters for the American Woman Suffrage Association. Her work appeared in a variety of publications of the time. Between 1909 to 1917, and again between 1930 to 1932, she worked under Arthur Brisbane, both writing and making drawings for the New York Evening Journal. In 1934, she painted The Christmas Mouse which appeared on the holiday cover of the Saturday Evening Post. She was one of the few Americans to have a painting hung in the Paris Salon (1908)* She was married to fellow artists William Balfour Ker (1898 to 1910) and Anton Otto Fisher (1912-1960).
