This charming watercolor courting scene depicts a couple in a bucolic setting with sheep in the foreground and in the background, on the far side of the river, stands a large center chimney house. The “shepherd” is placing a wreath of flowers on the head of a beautifully dressed young lady “shepherdess”. It was a delightful pastime for well to do young courting couples to dress up and venture into the countryside under the pretext of tending sheep!
(Minor scattered creasing and light foxing, later frame.17 ½” x 20” sight.)
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.
