J.C. Leyendecker: America's "Other" Illustrator

September 21 - November 18, 2007

Preview Reception is Friday, September 21, from 6:00-9:00pm

In his lifetime, Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874-1951) created 48 cover paintings for Collier’s magazine and 322 covers for Saturday Evening Post, more than even Norman Rockwell. His work over the years also included advertising campaigns with illustrations for Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Arrow shirts, and Kuppenheimer menswear. His popularity was due to his ability to convey in paintings the essence of both everyday life and international events. His unique sense of drama, romanticism, and humor captured America’s imagination. This exhibition is organized by the Haggin Museum in Stockton California and includes 50 original paintings, sketches, magaizine covers, and advertisements.
