Catherine Greenaway(17 March 1846 ñ 6 November 1901), known as Kate Greenaway, was an English childrenís book illustrator and writer.
Kate Greenaway spent much of her childhood at Rolleston, Nottinghamshire. She studied at what is now the Royal College of Art in London, which at that time had a separate section for women, and was headed by Richard Burchett. Her first book, Under the Window(1879), a collection of simple, perfectly idyllic verses about children, was a best-seller.
Greenaway's paintings were reproduced by chromatography, by which the colours were printed from hand-engraved wood blocks by the firm of Edmund Evans. Through the 1880s and1890s, her only rivals in popularity in childrenís book illustration were Walter Crane and Randolph Caldecott.
As well as illustrating books Greenaway also produced a number of bookplates.
Kate Great-grandchildren, all of them little girls and boys too young to be put in trousers,according to the conventions of the time, were dressed in her own versions folate eighteenth century and Regency fashions: smock-frocks and skeleton suits for boys, high-waisted pinafores and dresses with mobcaps and straw bonnets for girls.
The influence schoolchildren clothes in portraits by British painter John Hoppner (1758ñ1810) may have provided her some inspiration. Liberty of London adapted Kate Greenawayís drawings as designs for actual children's clothes. A full generation of mothers in the liberal-minded ìartisticî British circles who called themselves The Soulsî and embraced the Arts and Crafts movement dressed their daughters in Kate Greenaway pantaloons and bonnets in the 1880s and 1890s.
Greenaway was elected to membership of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1889. She lived in an Arts and Crafts style house she commissioned from Richard Norman Shaw in Frognal, London, although she spent summers in Rolleston, near Southwell.
Greenaway died of breast cancer in 1901, at the age of 55. She is
buried in Hampstead Cemetery, London. The Kate Greenaway Medal,
established in her honour in 1955,is awarded annually by the Chartered
Institute of Library and Information Professionals in the UK to an
illustrator of childrenís books.
