Морис Бауэр (Maurice Lincoln Bower) | Сейнт Николас (St. Nicholas)


An Old English Christmas – Singing Carols Before The Inn

Ещё будучи студентом, Морис Бауэр (Maurice Lincoln Bower; 1889-1980) печатался в ежемесячнике для семейного чтения "Сейнт Николас". Мне нравятся его, располагающие искренностью и энергетикой, объятые юношеским оптимизмом, романтические иллюстрации в журнале; эффектно и гармонично звучит творческий дуэт художника и писательницы Кэтрин Данлэп Картер (Katherine Dunlap Cather; 1877-1926). Графические работы Мориса Бауэра, этого периода, несомненно, уже отмечены печатью высокого дарования.
