Who remembers Leyendecker?

Almost everyone knows about Norman Rockwell and his fabulous covers of the Saturday Evening Post. But who remembers Joseph Leyendecker?

He has illustrated hundreds of covers of the Saturday Evening Post as well as many advertisement illustrations for its interior pages for over twenty years, with a style very similar - if not identical - to that of Rockwell. He copied? unlikely, since he has painted twenty years before. Norman Rockwell remains a myth of style and artistic longevity, but Leyendecker is definitely a great. 

Although Leyendecker is unknown to most artists, Norman Rockwell actually looked up to him... imitating his style? Here are some examples. A small tribute to a genius.

We absolutely love him!
