Jessie M. King Art Images

Jessie M. King's illustrations to Seven Happy Days, The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde (A House of Pomegranates) and more. You can also read Oscar Wilde's Fairy Tales with the Jessie King illustrations alongside.

About Jessie M. King Jessie M. King is known for her Art Nouveau style (Glascow School) drawings but she also designed jewelry, greeting cards, fabric, ceramics and batik textiles, and especially, murals.

Jessie was born in Bearsden, Glasgow, and, despite her family's disapproval, studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1892 to 1899 with the intention of becoming an art teacher. Between 1899 and 1907, she did teach courses in book and ceramic decoration at Glascow School. In 1920, she and her husband moved the Sheiling Atelier Art School from Paris to Kircudbright in southwest Scotland, and the couple lived and worked there for the rest of their lives.

King's Seven Happy Days illustrations were intentionally pastel and soft. The pale colors of King's work are not all intentional, however. The illustrations to A House of Pomegranates are quite vibrant. In many cases, the colored inks she used have faded over time.
