The Sanford B.D. Low Memorial Illustration Collection

 

Illustrations in the sampling range from N.C. Wyeth’s “One more step, Mr. Hands…” created for Robert Lewis Stevenson’s 1911 novel Treasure Island to Rowena Morrill’s popular Twilight Terrors published in National Lampoon Magazine, 1979. Action and adventure, love and romance, humor and cartoons, all can be found in this catalogue. As well as works by the leading 19th and 20th century illustrators the likes of Stevan Dohanos, James Montgomery Flagg, J.C. Leyendecker, Howard Pyle, and Norman Rockwell.

The Museum’s Low Illustration Collection consists of over 2,000 illustrations, many published in noted magazines ranging from Colliers and Cosmopolitan to Saturday Evening Post and Ladies Home Journal. Using media that ranged from ink, pencil and charcoal to watercolor, tempera and oil, each artist created an image designed to heighten and support the story being illustrated.
