J. C. Leyendecker - part 2

Leyendecker presumably in 1909 - he appears to be working on a sketch for the cover of
The Saturday Evening Post dated May 15 1909 (see below)

Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874 – 1951) was one of the pre-eminent American illustrators of the early 20th century. He is best known for his poster, book and advertising illustrations, the trade character known as The Arrow Collar Man, and his numerous covers for The Saturday Evening Post.

Between 1896 and 1950 Leyendecker illustrated more than 400 magazine covers including 322 for The Saturday Evening Post, as well as many advertisement illustrations for its interior pages. No other artist, until the arrival of Norman Rockwell two decades later, was so solidly identified with one publication.

For full biographical notes and for earlier works by Leyendecker, see part 1 also.
