Henry Patrick Raleigh (1880-1944) was one of the most prolific artists of the early nineteenth century. His work defined the jazz age and the roaring twenties. The new book is chock full of full color illustrations mostly taken from the original paintings and rarely seen photographs.
"Henry Raleigh, possibly one of America's most stylish storytellers in pen and watercolor, was a master of scene, design, and making women and their men look elegant and lithe. He defined the ideal smart set life, and gritty social settings with the equal ease, and lived his life at full throttle and martini shaker when illustrators defined the visual culture within the slick magazines. What an inspiring draftsman and storyteller, a real illustration treasure he was."
