Who Is the Artist?

This piece is called The Forge, and it's in the National Gallery of Art collection. You can click for a larger view.

You may not need to know much about art or artists to make a reasonable guess as to whose work this is. If you have children and you've read the classic children's picture books to them, you're probably familiar with some of this artist's work. If you aren't, then you missed at least one of the most important classics.

Give us your guess in the comments. If no one gets it right--although I'm pretty sure someone will--I'll add a self-portrait that gives some more clues. Right now, the distinctive style is your best hint.
