Further Information

This tableau of nursery rhyme figures, including Little Bo Peep, Simple Simon, The Queen of Hearts, Jack and Jill, Little Boy Blue and Little Miss Muppet, process across the page in a style akin to Kate Greenaway.

Emma Minnie Boyd, matriarch of the Boyd family, contributed illustrations to Louisa Anne Meredith’s publication, Waratah Rhymes for Young Australians (1891). This tableau demonstrates her masterly use of a simple ink line and selective watercolour palette.
