Hey, Harpies!

Google Image search doesn't know who drew this. My best guess at the signature is "O. Hartford," but I haven't been able to find anyone that fits that name. It's a lovely piece, though. Look at the glossy highlight in that one harpy/sirens hair!

If you know anything about this piece or illustrator, I'd love to hear it.

Edit: We have an ID! Writer and illustrator Oliver Herford. Wikipedia claims he was called "the American Oscar Wilde," and that he's the one who first said "Only the good die young."
