We know little about May Fairchild except that she was American and her dates, 1872-1959. The only thing else we know about her is that she produced some charming portraits of children. The image here of a toddler looks to have been painted in the 1920s or early 30s. All we know about the boy was that his name was Albert Cary. He wears a blue one-piece outfit with large buttons and a ruffled collar and sleeve trim. Note his marvelous stuffed dog.
A French reader writes, "This boy has a charming look. He is wearing a one piece outfit. Why does he need the two buttons in front?"
