Mabel Lucie Attwell (1879-1964.) Born Mile End,London,the ninth of ten children of a butcher.Studied at Regent School of Art and at Heatherley's School of Art,but,disliking the formal training, completed neither course.Married Harold Earnshaw (1908) and he is thought to have been responsible for some of the more naturalistic parts of her drawings,such as the animals.From 1911 until the end of her life she designed postcards for Valentines of Dundee.Following the success of a card depicting two children peering over the end of a bed at a mouse (entitled 'What's the good of a perfect day if you can't spend a perfect night') she developed a line in pictures of chubby children in situations with adult overtones and (possibly unconscious) suggestions of double entendre.A rapid and prolific worker, he also designed advertisements,posters,calendars,figurines and wall plaques and contributed to annuals and gift books.Some of her earlier books such as 'Peter Pan' and 'The Water Babies' were delicate and appealing but as she became a household name her drawing became increasingly stereotyped.She worked mainly in pen and ink and watercolour.Member SWA.She died at Fowey in Cornwall, where she had lived for many years. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too! So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,because of the lighter weight and the value of this item,for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
