Arthur Boyd Houghton


Wood engraving by the Dalziel Brothers

6½ x 3¾ inches

Illustration for Good Words, 1863, facing p.636.

Houghton in sentimental mode: cute children about to kiss, cute dog, and quaint toys. This represents the artist at the opposite extreme from his more characteristic treatment of childhood as a site of fear and unease.
