Sept. 1906 GOOD HOUSEKEEPING Cover Illustration



Karl Anderson

Karl Anderson - (1878-1956)

  This gouache painting on board was created by Karl Anderson for the cover of the September 1906 issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine. This scene depicts a little girl on her way home from school, as she is greeted with excitement by her cocker spaniel dog. This is a great turn of the century Americana illustration.

  Karl Anderson was born in 1878 in Morning Sun, Ohio. He studied at the Art Institute in Chicago with John Vanderpoel and James Earle Fraser. He became friends with fellow student J. C. Leyendecker. In 1896, Anderson replaced Leyendecker at J. C. Mantz and Company. He also worked for the Sunday Morning Telegram, and in 1899, he became a resident Artist for Woman's Home Companion magazine. In 1900, Anderson studied in Europe before returning to New York, where he would create cover illustrations for such magazines as The Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, Colliers, and Scribner's. He again traveled to Europe, and eventually turned his focus to fine art painting. Karl Anderson was a member of the Salmagundi Club, the National Academy of Design, and Grand Central Galleries. He passed away in 1956.
