Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

Dean Cornwell magazine illustrations

Dean Cornwell magazine illustrations
Francis Vallejo points us to a wonderful Flickr set containing scans of magazine illustrations by the great American illustrator Dean Cornwell.

Cornwell studied with Harvey Dunn, a student of the amazing Howard Pyle, and also with Frank Brangwyn, carrying forward the intensity, power and superb draftsmanship that were the hallmarks of those great illustrators’ work.

For more see my previous posts on Dean Cornwell (and here).

    Yes, I liked the portrayal of his materials and one of his other paintings in progress.
