The Art of Herbert Paus - Pre-Order



In stock



Another great entry in The Illustrated Press' series of artist monographs.

Herbert Paus was a contemporary of J.C. Leyendecker. They both created numerous covers for Collier's Magazine and both illustrated Hart Schaffner & Marx catalogs and advertisements. So it is not a surprising that Paus shares a number of Leyendecker's qualities: a posterized style, great silhouettes, great design, however unlike Leyendecker, he is nearly completely unknown today. Rediscover a great illustrator from the Golden Age!

From the publisher:

HERBERT PAUS is best known today for his faultless draftsmanship, his sense of design, and his brilliant use of color in his long-running series of covers for Popular Science magazine. He was a member of the government's committee for pictorial publicity during WWI, and painted many effective posters to support the war effort. The success of these widely seen posters lead to commissions from such publications as Woman's Home Companion, American Magazine, Collier's, and many others. Paus also painted for such advertisers as Hart Schaffner & Marx, Goodyear, General Motors, Certain-teed, and Victor Records. This new book presents a comprehensive overview of Paus' illustrious career, featuring scores of illustrations reproduced from original paintings as well as rare tear sheets and photographs.
