September 1910
Good Housekeeping Magazine Cover Illustration



Cushman Parker

Cushman Parker - (1881-1940)

  This painting was created by Cushman Parker for the cover of the September 1910 issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine. This is another stunning example of the work created by this talented artist. The image is typical of the Cushman Parker images that appeared on other magazines, or in ads during this time period. Much of his work revolved around images of young children. This is a great magazine cover illustration of a young mother holding her beautiful baby on her lap, as she proudly poses for the artist.

  Little is known concerning the life of Cushman Parker. He was born in 1881. The Saturday Evening Post commissioned Parker to create covers for the September 9, 1916, October 18, 1919, and May 18, 1935 issues. All three covers show great images of young children. He created 18 cover illustrations for Good Housekeeping Magazine between August 1905 and September 1910. Most of these cover images were either a smartly dressed pretty woman (the same model in some cases) or young children. In 1909, Parker created a paper doll line known as "Little Louise", which also appeared in Good Housekeeping Magazine. Between 1909-1915, he created another series of paper dolls, called "Dorothy Dimple and Her Friends". The dolls in this series represented a specific country, each wearing paper clothing representing that country. Parker also created advertising images for Bon Ami Cleaning Powder, Welch's Grape Juice, as well as ads for Beech-Nut products, notably Beech-Nut Peanutbutter, used during the 'teens and twenties. Cushman Parker passed away in 1940.
