More than the Kewpie: The Rose O’Neill Collection at the D.B. Dowd Modern Graphic History Library
Rose O’Neill was an American cartoonist who is most famous for creating the Kewpie doll—child-like, winged creatures named after Cupid, the Roman god of love. She was also a successful magazine and book illustrator, writer, sculptor, bohemian, and suffragette, and for a time was the highest-paid female illustrator in the world. O’Neill settled near Branson, Missouri, where she lived until her death in 1944. Join Curator Skye Lacerte for a visual tour of this trailblazer’s work.
