This chart was inspired by the illustrations of Jessie Willcox Smith. Smith was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1884. She attended the School of Design for Women (which is now Moore College of Art & Design), and later studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under Thomas Eakins in Philadelphia, graduating in 1888. A year later, she started working in the production department of the Ladies' Home Journal. She left to take classes under Howard Pyle, first at Drexel and then at the Brandywine School. She was a prolific contributor to books and magazines during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, illustrating stories and articles for clients such as Century, Collier's Weekly, Leslie's Weekly, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and the Ladies' Home Journal. Smith may be most well known for her covers on Good Housekeeping. Smith also painted posters and portraits. Her twelve illustrations for Charles Kingsley's The Water-Babies (1916) are well known. The Hall of Fame of the Society of Illustrators has inducted only 10 women since its inception in 1958. Smith was a renowned artist of American life. Smith's papers are deposited in the collection of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
