Louis Prang: Innovator, Collaborator, Educator

Should with joy ye mortals pray

Description

This card, designed by Dora Wheeler, won the second prize in the 1881 Competition. The retail cost of this card was $1.25 with fringed trim, or $.75 without. The poem on the back of the card is by New England poet Celia Thaxter. After winning $2000 in the 1882 competition, Wheeler took the money and studied abroad in Paris with fellow artist and Prang card designer Rosina Emmet (Peck, 51) (Freeman 180)
Dora Wheeler studied art under William Merritt Chase and worked with her mother, Candace Wheeler, for the firm of Louis Comfort Tiffany, creating tapestries with similar designs to those found in her Christmas cards produced for Prang. (Peck, 51)
