An original, antique nursery rhyme print drawn by Frederick Richardson.  Richardson, an American illustrator, studied in St. Louis and Paris and taught at the Chicago Art Institute.  He worked as a newspaper illustrator in Chicago before moving in 1903 to New York to be a book illustrator.  He is famous for his illustrations for L. Frank Baum and for various children’s tales and nursery rhymes.  These are terrific examples of his work, each vividly illustrating a rhyme, a verse for which is included in the image.  These have universal appeal, that is, for children of all ages, with their charming and colorful images.
