    Found more Mead Schaeffer in my archives... And some more Dean Cornwell...

    EDIT: The colorful 3rd picture with the grandmother in the chair is by Charles S. Chapman, not Schaeffer. Sorry.

    Thanks a million for these downloads fellas!
    Its interesting looking at those vignette 'unfinished' pictures. I'm assuming that this is possibly how Cornwell worked technically: weaving together the picture like a tapestry or quilt. The weaker paintings seem to be the ones where he is not doing this but going for 'atmosphere' and not pushing the shape linkages across the surface so much.

    Some painters paint more by the volumes (Rockwell), some by distances (Whistler) and some more by the inference created by shape interactions (Cornwell and Leyendecker).
    Of course painters use all these ways of realising the world in combination - its just the degree to which one particular type of understanding takes precedence.

    Alrighty... I've just scanned in the rest of Cornwell's illustration masterpiece, The Man of Galilee from 1927. I saw one of these in the original a while back (the first one just below of Jesus and the Old man with the boy in the foreground) at Illustration House in New York City and believe me when I tell you, it knocked me back, incredibly powerful work, very graphic, and pretty darn big for an illustration too (24 x 48 maybe?). Interestingly, rather than just use impasto white to bring light areas forward (as per classical oil painting technique), Cornwell placed a lot of dark figures in the immediate foreground and painted them with thick dark impastoed paint... and man did those figures pop! Like 3-D! The boy in the below illustration did that. Popped right out of the canvas.... which does not at all come through in the reproduction.

    Man, I love those early Cornwells so much. Especially the ones with that wistful model with the great neck.

    More scans... (sorry for the quality on some of these... but many of these were printed really small)

    Elwell... I know exactly what you mean. Once he began doing murals he was lost. But his early stuff, prior to 1931... 99 percent gold. He was better influenced by Brangwyn before he went to study with him. I was lucky enough to see the first solo Cornwell show at Illustration House back in the 1990s... almost all of the pieces were 1920s and the originals are 140 times better than the reproductions.

    My understanding is, that long necked model was his mistress. Shhhh.

    Falling in love with the models is an occupational hazard.......Or perhaps she was his mistress first and then posed for him.
    Anyway, thanks a million Kev for all these beautiful, beautiful pictures.

    I totally enjoyed that. I'll enjoy it more when I sit down and look at them, instead of getting wadded up about downloading them all to a folder.

    The sad thing is, reproduction methods being what they were in those days, they would mostly have looked pretty bad in print.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Scans of Mead Schaeffer's illustrations for the Count of Monte Cristo at Golden Age Comic Book Stories. (From the original repros, so the quality isn't great, but still pretty awesome.)

    You know, there's a book on Dean Cornwell, here. My city's library had it (pretty hefty price, so I just borrowed).

    In my opinion, while it has some nice prints in it, way too much of the book is black and white to do him justice, either.

    Kev, Francis, you are gods among men!!!

    Seriously, Cornwell's paintings from the 20s and 30s are my all-time favorite works...by anyone...ever...

    Anyway, I take part in the spirit of generosity that runs through this thread. Here's a bunch of highres scans of cornwell's work

    and....wait for it.....

    a bunch of high res pictures of fechin's work (whom Cornwell studied with in the evenings for awhile...Fechin also did a portrait of Mrs. Cornwell)

    here's a small taste of both (cornwell on top, fechin on bottom)
