Did you ring for the messenger? – Orson B. Lowell

 This is the only illustration I found interesting because i really like the design of all the wooden furniture. it feels like im in the scene but the chair kept my eye centered on that design. Orson Byron Lowell was an illustrator that was different from all the others, from the way his work was to the person he was an good-natured personality. His style and personality kept him active in the illustration field for more than 60 years. Throughout his life he has moved a lot first starting with where he was born, Wyoming, Iowa, in 1871. Then moved to Chicago because his work was already starting to become popular at a young age. And finally he made his way to NY where he became really famous for his work. From what I can see from his work the setting looks very realistic but in away cartoony maybe from the painting style. This illustration is also symbolic to contemporary courting rituals did not permit gifts to be shared from a man to a women without her approval. The gifts were usually things that would easily go away unlike something of a teddy bear, watch, etc.
