Illustrating Modern Life is a collection of 60-plus paintings from The Golden Age of American Illustration. During this important era in American Art, from the 1880s to the 1930s, advertisers and magazines commissioned the top artists of the day to create paintings that were used to illustrate ads and magazine stories. Commercial artists such as Charles Dana Gibson, Norman Rockwell, and J.C. Lyendecker became household names, with work that was both breathtaking and accessible. The original paintings and drawings in this show are from an East Coast private collection that includes such top commercial artists of the early 20th century as N. C. Wyeth and Maxfield Parrish. See the show in Malibu at Pepperdine University's Weisman Museum of Art.
