Joseph Christian Leyendecker
(1874 - 1951)
One of the best Illustrators of the Twentieth Century. His works appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, American Weekly, Collier's, Popular Magazine, Century Illustrated, Ladies' Home Journal and many more. His Advertisements for Kuppenheimer, Interwoven socks, Chesterfield, Kellogg's, Ivory, & Pierce Arrow are legendary. He created many American visual icons (New Year's Baby, Santa Claus, Arrow Collar Man) that were copied in abundance and influenced most illustrators who followed him, in particular Norman Rockwell.
