Golden Age Illustration Exhibit on Long Island

Clockwise from U.L.: Norman Rockwell, Dean Cornwell,
Maxfield Parrish, Tom Lovell
Coming up December 10, 2016 is an exhibition of Golden Age American illustration called "Norman Rockwell and Friends: American Illustrations from the Mort Künstler Collection." The exhibit, in Huntington, NY, is borrowed from the collection of illustrator Mort Künstler.

Mr. Künstler's collection is featured in an article in the new issue (#54) of Illustration Magazine.

The magazine also takes a look at the science fiction illustrations of Frank R. Paul (1884-1963) in a profile written by David Saunders. The final feature examines the pioneering illustration work by the Waud brothers, who produced illustrations of the Civil War.

The exhibition is at the Heckscher Museum in Huntington, New York on Long Island, and it will be on view through March 5, 2017.

Previously: The Action Art of Mort Künstler.

There is so much drama in each of these, and each in very different ways. Maxfield Parrish's use of color is awesome! Thank you.

Let us Islanders known if you make it down here for the exhibition maybe we can meet and this time I can get the "Portrait in the Wild" signed since I missed you when you were at the Bronx Zoo during the summer.
