Harrison Cady, Watercolor, Nuns on Snowy Path, Signed and Dated 1928
Painted on academy board, unframed, entire view

Harrison Cady (1877-1970) was a noted illustrator, born in Gardner, Massachusetts and best known for
his works in Bedtime Stories, a daily newspaper created by book and magazine writer Thornton W.
Burgess. Burgess conceived the character of Peter Rabbit (not to be confused with Beatrix Potter’s
creation of the same name), and each of these Bedtime Stories was illustrated with a drawing by Cady,
who had illustrated some of Burgess magazine stories as early as 1911. His work was published in LIFE,
the Saturday Evening Post, Country Gentleman, and the Ladies Home Journal. Cady's etchings were
included in Fine Prints of the Year (1930) and are in the collections of The Library of Congress. He was a
member of the American Society of Etchers and the American Watercolor Society. He also exhibited at
the National Academy.
