Beatrix Potter - Bunnies in Winter Helen Beatrix Potter (1866 – 1943) English author, illustrator, mycologist and conservationist This watercolour is at the Victoria and Albert Museum, but isn't shown online. In the past they sold it on notecards. Very similar to her older cover drawing for "The Happy Pair." This one is much more winsome and a more mature paint
