Illustrating Modern Life:

The Golden Age of American Illustration from the Kelly Collection

January 12–March 31, 2013


The period from the 1890s through the 1930s was the Golden Age of American Illustration. The rapid rise of popular magazines created a new audience for art—the American public—and a new demand for illustrations. The nation's most talented artists responded by turning illustration into a sophisticated art form that gave visual life to our nation's dreams and ideals. Drawn from one of the country's premier collections of historic American illustration, this exhibition features original paintings by legendary artists such as Howard Pyle, N. C. Wyeth, J. C. Leyendecker, and Norman Rockwell.
