Biographical Sketch

Roger Antoine Duvoisin was born August 28, 1900 (some sources say 1904) in Geneva, Switzerland. He studies at the College Moderne in Geneva, and the Ecole des Beaux Arts and Ecole des Art Decoratifs in Paris. Early in his career he worked in Switzerland as a scenery designer, and later as a textile designer in Paris. He came to the United States in 1927 to work as a textile designer, and then began illustrating book and magazine advertisements. In 1932 he wrote and illustrated his first book for children, A Little Boy Was Drawing. Throughout his long and prolific career he wrote and illustrated dozens of books for children, and won the 1948 Caldecott Medal for White Snow, Bright Snow.

During the 1950s he illustrated many books written by his wife, children's author Louise Fatio. Their 'Happy Lion' books were extremely popular for their illustrations and gentle messages of friendship and tolerance. Roger Duvoisin was noted for his illustrations for a variety of animal characters such as Petunia the goose, Jasmine the cow, and Veronica the hippopotamus. Each animal has a unique personality, and the situations they get themselves into are at once readily understood and appreciated by readers, as is Duvoisin's sense of playfulness and his ability to teach while entertaining, such as when Petunia learns the pitfalls of pretension and Jasmine the value of individuality. Duvoisin believed that children's imaginations needed to be stimulated, especially by nature, and that art work should arouse them, the 'frightening' illustrations as well as the 'tasteful' ones. Duvoisin worked in a variety of media, and believed that the simpler the illustration the better. In 1976 he received the Kerlan Award for his contribution to children's literature. He died on June 30, 1980, in Morristown, New Jersey.
