Harvey T. Dunn (1884-1952)
Harvey Dunn began his training at the Art Institute of Chicago, but was soon accepted into the Howard Pyle School of Art in Wilmington. He quickly began accepting commissions, illustrating both novels and stories. Much of his work was for The Saturday Evening Post, with whom he had a fruitful relationship that lasted almost thirty years. Although Dunnís powerfully bold strokes and thick impasto made him a natural choice for western and adventure stories, he was equally capable of conveying softer emotions. His sense of drama was such that he was one of eight illustrators chosen by the government to travel to Europe as part of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I. Dunn never lost his admiration for Howard Pyle, and went on to become a superlative teacher in his own right, training a whole new generation of illustrators in the methods of the master.
