frame. Artist Biography : Maud Tousey Fangel 1881-1968
Maud Tousey Fangel was born on Jan. 1st. 1881, the
daughter of a professor. She began drawing in earnest
when she was a teenager & studied at Boston's School
art director of Good Housekeeping, Guy Fangel, who
gave her her first commercial assignments & later
proposed marriage to her. Their son , Lloyd, began
Maud Fangel's fascination with drawing babies. She did
more than 1500 pictures of him, before he was three.
And later she would immortalize his face as the boy on
the Cracker Jack Box. Many of her pictures were done
with pastels, which allowed her to capture the
movements of her young subjects. Most of her models
were children from poor families, from orphanages.
Unaware of this, one newspaper referred to these
children as "glamor babies".
