These are very sweet Bessie Pease Gutmann prints.
They are in 9" x 11" in the wood frames.
The prints measure 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". The pieces are matted.
The little girl and her dog is title The Reward and I am not sure what the other piece is titled.
They are in good condition.
I have always loved her work because the dark haired children look exactly like my two girls did as toddler's. Dark and curly hair.
Some history on Bessie
Pease Gutmann's The Reward and In Disgrace prints (I don't currently have "In Disgrace")
This image and "In Disgrace" (published a year earlier in 1935) were often sold together as a pair. Together, these two prints were Bessie's second most popular images. Only "A Little Bit of Heaven" and "Awakening" sold more copies.
Bessie used her daughter Lucille and the neighbor's collie dog as models for "In
A poem written by M. Leona Harig that same year about the illustration suggested that the little girl and her dog "Rusty" had been playing with a ball that bounced into her mother's flower garden. When Rusty had broken and crushed the flowers while trying to retrieve the ball, the mother sent her "naughty" daughter to stand in the corner, "...Till it was time for Tea."
...But Rusty knew it was his fault,
That he was quite to blame;
So he came and sat close by me
And hung his head in shame...
Of course Bessie couldn't let the little girl and her doggy remain standing in the corner, so a year later she painted "The Reward", and wrote this poem to accompany the print:
My little doggy Rusty's just
As sweet as he can be
Not Long ago, perhaps you know,
He shared disgrace with me,
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
For one so true and trusty;
So now I have an ice cream cone,
I'm sharing with Rusty.
