Lullaby and Goodnight—Children’s Literature from the Morse Collection


The charming characters and whimsical prose of late 19th-century children’s literature found their source in a grander plan to instill beauty from the earliest years. This exhibition focuses on three authors and illustrators noted for their pioneering contributions to children’s literature: Kate Greenaway (1846–1901), Mary Dow Brine (1836–1925), and Eulalie Osgood Grover (1873–1958). Their work, in the context of the period, can be seen as part of the Aesthetic movement (1870–90), a crusade that sought to infuse all objects with beauty and, in turn, elevate the quality of life of all who surrounded themselves with it.
