Retro Art   •   Edward Penfield @ Wikipedia

The last years of the 19th century can undoubtedly be called the culmination of the art of illustration. Posters and posters, magazines and book titles were then almost exclusively designed by illustrators, whose art was thus the focus of public attention. One of those who helped shape that era was Brooklyn-born Edward Penfield, who is often regarded as the "father of the American poster." Penfield had received formal artistic training at the New York Art Student's League and then moved to the famous Harper's Magazine, which later became its artistic director. In this task, Penfield was responsible for the design of the magazine's front pages.

It is thanks to Penfield's individual style that these worksheets became contemporary works of art that made illustration an even more widely accepted form of art. Even today, these works, with their expressive elegance, symbolize the turn of the century. Penfield achieved this recognition through the use of new available techniques, especially in the area of ??color printing. In the figures he drew, he renounced too many details and used bold lines for contouring. Inspired by Japanese artists and at about the same time growing poster art in Europe, Penfield established the illustration as his own art direction and paved the way for the subsequently developing subject of graphic design. © Meisterdrucke
