ILLUSTRATION MAGAZINE #63

Availability: In stock

$15.00
Almost Gone! Highly Recommended. Art by E.M. Jackson, Mario Cooper and Frederic Remington. Featuring the work of E.M. Jackson, known for his many slick magazine illustrations and covers for the Saturday Evening Post as well as illustrated books. His style was a mix of J.C. Leyendecker, Dean Cornwell and even pulp influence. He was prolific but underappreciated until now. A second feature examines another magazine illustrator, Mario Cooper, known for his watercolor and dye illustrations for fiction featured in Collier's, American Weekly, and other major titles. Finally, "The Demise of the 'Frontier' and the Birth of the 'New West' " looks at early American artists of the Western frontier, focused here on Remington and Charles Russell.

Featuring the work of E.M. Jackson, known for his many slick magazine illustrations and covers for the Saturday Evening Post as well as illustrated books. His style was a mix of J.C. Leyendecker, Dean Cornwell and even pulp influence. He was prolific but underappreciated until now. A second feature examines another magazine illustrator, Mario Cooper, known for his watercolor and dye illustrations for fiction featured in Collier's, American Weekly, and other major titles. Finally, "The Demise of the 'Frontier' and the Birth of the 'New West' " looks at early American artists of the Western frontier, focused here on Remington and Charles Russell.

Jackson painted 48 covers for the Post, ten more for other Curtis publications, plus covers for Ladies' Home Journal, McCallsand Colliers. He designed radios for The Detroit Radio Company. He created magazine and book illustrations for authors including Kathleen Norris, Rex Beach, Pearl Buck, Edna Ferber, Harold Bell Wright and Robert W. Chambers.

Cooper was the president of the American Water Color Society for many years, and he's up at the top of fine magazine illustrators from the 1940s and 50s.

Plus important book reviews (if we aren't already handling those listed, we usually drop everything and try to get them in stock), exhibitions and events. Every issue is a treat, the first and still best title to look at the world of commercial artists and illustration, bringing to life dreams, romance, fantasy, adventure, history and more.
