Joseph Clement Coll
(1881-1921)
Although J. C. Coll received no formal art training as a youth, he developed his talent by studying the works of artists such as Edward Austin Abbey and Howard Pyle, and particularly those of Spanish artist Daniel Vierge. He further developed his quick, dramatic strength of line as a young newspaper artist in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia. But it was Collís vivid imagination that would lead to book and magazine commissions for the exotic stories of authors like Author Conan Doyle and Sax Rohmer. Unfortunately Collís burgeoning career was cut short by appendicitis at age forty.
