Illustration for "Her Own Sport" by Charles Belmont Davis, Scribners Magazine , December 1915. Watercolor & Gouache. Signed lower left corner. Frederic Gruger, perhaps best known for his work for Saturday Evening Post, is counted among the Whos Who of American illustrators. He was considered to be one illustrator who began a new trend, and his work had a strong influence on many other illustrators. Arthur W. Brown (1881-1966) once wrote that to Henry Raleigh, H.J. Mowat, and himself, Gruger was their hero during the Golden Era of Illustration, the decade from 1910 to 1920. His compositions were monumental even in miniature. His characters were part of the story and believable. Another illustrator strongly influenced by the point of view of Gruger was Ernest Fuhr (1874-1933). 22 1/2 x 17 1/2 in. (Framed), 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 in. (sight)


Good condition. The paper slides and needs to be stabilized
