About The Artist:

Born in Greenwich Village in New York City, Agnes Tait was a painter of landscapes, figures, portraits and decorative panels, as well as a print maker and children's book illustrator. She painted in the Romantic Realist style, with some of her works being allegorical.

Book illustrations include 'Heidi' in 1947 and 'Paco's Miracle' in 1961. Tait was an active WPA (Federal Arts Project) artist in the 1930s, for which she executed what is today considered her most famous work, "Skating in Central Park" (Smithsonian American Art Museum). She married journalist William McNulty in 1933, and in 1941, moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico where she died in 1981. She traveled extensively, spending time in Europe, Mexico, and other parts of the United States.
