Clare Leighton (1898-1989) was an English/American artist, writer and illustrator. Leighton is widely known for her books and her wood engraving illustrations, which were not yet seen as a legitimate form of artistic expression. She persevered nonetheless, with depictions of the natural environment and the reality of hard labour and its virtues being core themes in her work.
