Various artists/makers

Not on view

"The Baby’s Bouquet," along with "The Baby’s Opera" (21.36.157), is among Crane’s best-known works. The decoration of the nursery featured in the title illustration displays Crane’s skill as a designer of ornament and wallpaper as well as his stylistic affiliation with the Arts and Crafts movement. His sister Lucy was responsible for the collection and arrangement of the tunes in this volume.
