« Al Parker's great illustrations as designs | Main | Frederic Dorr Steele - Horses »


Susan Parker

I am the daughter of Al Parker and this was one of my all time favorites of his. He used my hair and mother's hands for this one. I have very few of his originals and I wish this was one of them. Most of the work he did was camera ready only not "finished" works. In those days artists sold their illustrations and had no further rights to them. I'm glad to have discovered your website and your kind words on the works of my father.

Great blog here , love Parker's work.

Seeing these masterful illustrations you realise how much some contemporary illustrators rely upon the art from the fifties, sixties and before. In some cases it's almost a case of plagiarizing!
