Spotlight on J.C. Leyendecker

J.C. (Joseph Christian) Leyendecker was one of the most prolific illustrators of the early to mid 20th century. His easily identifiable style has graced more than 400 magazine covers, and many dozens of magazine advertisements (most notably the iconic Arrow Collar ads). He is most closely associated with the Saturday Evening Post, where he was commissioned to paint 322 covers! The men he paints are strong and athletic. The women, graceful and feminine. To this day, his work is beloved and much sought after. The following are some of our favorite examples of his work.
