A Vanishing Breed
A few of the early advertising illustrations from the inestimable work of Bernie Fuchs, “arguably the most influential illustrator of the second half of the 20th century,” who died a few days ago.
Inducted into the hall of fame in 1975, Fuchs was among the youngest inductees on a roster that included Rockwell, N.C. Wyeth, Winslow Homer and John James Audubon.
A member of a vanishing generation, his death marks the passing of an era. He will be missed.
