Picturing a World

Clara Miller Burd

Always on the lookout for women artists who were working during the time period of my new novel, ANONMITY, I was pleased this morning to stumble across Clara Miller Burd (1873–1933). She was born in New York City, studied art there and in Paris, and became an illustrator. She also designed glass for Tiffany.

For a post on how Burd’s depiction of children at the seaside reflects American leisure at the turn of the 20th C, click here. Its mention of the Stratemeyer Syndicate’s Bobbsey Twins books specially interested me since my heroine-in-progress Mattie works for a similar syndicate. I was also glad to learn about the magazine, Modern Priscilla. For more art from the magazine, click here.
