Woodcut from a watercolour illustration by Kate Greenaway RA. Plate taken from the 'Illustrated London News', 26 December 1874. Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) was one of the most popular book illustrators of the 19th century. She studied at the Slade School of Art under Alphonse Legros and began producing Christmas card designs in 1871, moving into book illustration in the late 1870s. She also exhibited her work, which consisted mostly of watercolour images of children, at the Royal Academy from 1877.
