His work appeared in such popular magazines as Redbook, The Saturday Evening Post, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and many more. Exquisite visual form and color spring to life from the illustrations of stories, historical events, and commercial products. His work reflected the interests, concerns, and dreams that characterized each of five decades. His immense technical skill enabled him to paint in different styles and adapt to the needs of his varied assignments. The reader will encounter hours of aesthetic and historical richness from this well-balanced collection.
