Magazine Art

Magazines shaped our lives, and the rest is history.

The great illustrators of the period 1850-1950 had a tremendous influence on us and the rest of the world. One of the most popular ways they presented their work was as the cover art for the mass and specialist magazines that were published under thousands of titles and in millions and millions of copies. We know today of Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish, but there were hundreds and thousands of other artists whose work is now forgotten except by collectors and specialists. Some have been honored by art books about their work, but most are now simply unknown to the general public.

One reason for this undeserved obscurity is that their work is quite difficult to find. Bound volumes of these magazines, both in libraries and in the hands of private collectors, usually do not include the covers, for reasons we today find hard to imagine. You must look for individual copies of these magazines, sold as collector's items and available in variable condition. Old magazines turn up regularly on eBay and in shops, but they are expensive, and it is difficult to find, analyze, and store them in one's home. Hence MagazineArt.org.

We scan and photograph magazine covers from this era: as many as we can find, of whatever subject matter. The only requirement is that the issue must -have- a cover design. We prefer the ones that change from issue to issue, but we'll record them even if they simply list the contents of the magazine. We've had images donated, and we've picked them up where we can. At this time we have thousands of them, many of them suitable for display but all requiring some processing in Photoshop before they are presentable.

Every picture tells a story, and this 1946 ad from FIELD AND STREAM tells one worthy of a SATURDAY EVENING POST cover. So, anyway, just has hooked whom with a fishing line? Looks like a tricky way for the fisherman to meet the fisherbabe. No indication who the artist was, but we're pretty sure we've seen his work elsewhere.

Ad for Jell-O, from the December, 1912 issue of McCALL'S MAGAZINE. The woman's face has been painted (or at least heavily hand-worked) onto a photo of a woman with a shopping basket full of food for Christmas dinner. The food items have all been colorized, as have her face, and gloves. The drawing of the Jello box has surely been pasted into her hand. Note the typical turkey of a century ago; it is definitely not one of the bloated beasts we buy today.

Several local children wandering through the art museum are surprised to see the original art to the famous billboard picture of the Chef and his bowl of CoW. It's "An Old Friend," they didn't expect to see there. Of course such a painting would be featured prominently in a modern art museum of the right kind. Published in the September, 1922 issue of NEEDLECRAFT. Artist: Edw. V. Brewer Source: Cynde Georgen, Trail End Historic Site, Sheridan Wyoming Restoration by: Cynde Georgen
