Name Jessie Willcox SMITH
Birth 1863, USA
Died 1935, USA

Jessie Willcox Smith was a genuine superstar among female illustrators in the United States during the Golden Age of American illustration. Besides her many successes as an illustrator, she worked for "Good Housekeeping" magazine, designing covers between 1917 and 1932. The Hall of Fame of the Society of Illustrators has inducted only 10 women since its inception in 1958. Smith was the second of these, in 1991, after Lorraine Fox. Of the ten, three of them were members of The Red Rose Girls, Jessie Smith herself, Elizabeth Shippen Green and Violet Oakley. The women's homes were arguably the finest assembly of illustrative talent ever seen in American life.
