  • Joseph Christian Leyendecker (March 23, 1874 – July 25, 1951) was a German-American illustrator. He is one of the greatest painters/illustrators of all time. He is best known for his poster, book and advertising illustrations, the trade character known as The Arrow Collar Man, and his numerous covers for The Saturday Evening Post. Leyendecker was regarded as one of the preeminent artists of the early 1900’s despite the homoerotic aesthetic of his work during a not-so-gay-friendly era.

    Jaxon Arthur Northon is self taught oil painter specializing in portraiture. He works from his studio in his hometown of Reno, Nevada.
