Illustrations for "A Bit of Foolishness"

One illustration appeared with each part of "A Bit of Foolishness" in Harper's Young People on August 2 and August 9, 1881. The first is signed and the second is not. The artist appears to be Thure De Thulstrup (1848-1930). Born in Stockholm, Sweden, he studied in Paris and immigrated to Canada and then to the United States, where he exhibited at the Pan American Exposition in St. Louis in 1901. He served as an illustrator for the New York Daily Graphic, Leslie's, and Harper's. At Harper's he covered major news stories such as presidential inaugurations and funerals. He became famous for paintings of American colonial life. (Source: Who Was Who in American Art, edited by Peter H. Falk, Madison, CT: Sound View Press, 1985, p. 162).
