#1) The New Ladies Home Journal, January 1916 , The Curtis Publishing Company. Cover illustration
(image 2) by W. J. Aylward (1875-1956), painter and illustrator for many
publications (e.g. Harper's Weekly) and books (e.g. Jack London, Jules Verne).
He was a member of the Brandywine School and student of Howard Pyle.
This is a terrific issue with many illustrations including image 3 by William
Ladd Taylor (1854-1926) who combined his Victorian sentiments with
attention to detail and design of the Arts and Crafts Movement in his illustrations.
Taylor preceded N. C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell, who, along with Maxfield
Parrish were all part of Curtis Publishing's stable of artists. Taylor studied
at Art Student's League, NY and before establishing a small studio in Boston.
He became a member of the Boston Art Club, the Society of Illustrators (in
1905) and the Copley Society (in 1907). Taylor illustrated scenes from the Old
and New Testament such the image shown here - "And she wrapped him in
swaddling clothes...". There are great ads including the Willys-Overland
