NEW YORK — Growing up in London in an upper middle class family, Beatrix Potter (English, 1866–1943) had a privileged but sheltered childhood with few girls her age who she could call friends. While her family was said to be strict, she was allowed to have many pets and her nursery was home to a variety of animals, from frogs, mice and guinea pigs to birds, a turtle, and of course, rabbits.
