Picturing a World

Alice Barber Stephens

This Christmas shopping street scene is the sort that might have met my new heroine Mattie when she arrived in New York City at the turn of the 20th C. It was painted by Alice Barber Stephens, another of Jeanette’s contemporaries whom I have discovered only since writing Where the Light Falls. Not only did Barber study at the Académie Julian as Jeanette did, but she made a career as an illustrator as Jeanette will; and, as someone in publishing, she's the sort of artist Mattie might meet. Lovely for new discoveries to connect the worlds of my imaginary sisters!
