A delightful oil on canvas by Eugenie Wireman likely used by the Curtis Publishing Company as a Christmas magazine cover circa 1910 - 1920. Wireman studied under Howard Pyle and worked as a Brandywine school illustrator creating children's book illustrations, magazine covers, and advertising art in a manner similar to Jessie Wilcox Smith for many Golden Age of Illustration magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post. A delightful view of a young child enjoying the spoils of a bountiful Christmas Morning, with great imagery and antique toy laden fanciful nostalgic appeal.
