Image for Ain't They Cunning?

Ain't They Cunning?

Currier & Ives provided "cheap and popular" pictures in the form of lithographs that appealed to the American public. The country was changing at an unprecedented rate and idealized sentimental images provided a sense of security to the people. Depictions of children were especially well-received as they represented the future hope of the country. Here a happy young girl invites the viewer to admire her two wary puppies.
