Joseph Christian Leyendecker (American art, 1874 – 1951)

Joseph Christian Leyendecker (March 23, 1874 – July 25, 1951) developed as a major talent near the turn of the twentieth century and became the most in vogue American illustrator of his day. J.C. Leyendecker was a keen student of self-promotion and quickly established an easily identifiable style, reaching the peak of his fame and productivity in the 1930's. Leyendecker's approach to his career influenced the art of illustration and he became mentor to an entire generation of younger artists.
