Illustration from Sunny Rhymes for Happy Children, 1917

Carmen L. Browne (March 29, 1895 - April 11, 1992) was an early twentieth century author and illustrator, particularly of children's books.[1][page needed]

Early life and education[edit]

Browne was born on March 29, 1895 in Calumet, Michigan.[2] She attended the Chicago Art Institute and the Art Students League of New York.[3]


Browne created illustrations for books and greeting cards for the P. F. Volland Company.[1][page needed][4][5][6] Her illustrations were described as "light and dainty",[4] "difficult to surpass in sheer loveliness",[7] "apt pictures .. to please the wee ones",[8] "assisting the text admirably, designed as they are to delight the child's heart,"[9] and as making "appropriate" gift books for "little friends and relatives.[10] She also designed wallpaper patterns for children,[11] and invented an educational doll apparatus, "to associate with a doll educational matter which is commonly presented in unattractive, formal lessons."[12] Her lithographs, some of which were shown at the Ninth International Print Makers' Exhibtion in 1928, were described as "amusing and very expert".[13]

A 1927 New York Times review of a group show at the National Art Club described a Browne image of a girl pulling weeds as being "as true to nature as Millet tried to make his peasant girls," and a Browne nude as, "a fine abstraction" that "removes all superfluous details and gives a chance for beautiful rhythm of movement."[14]

Personal life[edit]

Browne married Jesse Augustus Luckner (1891-1975) in 1945.[2]
