Before Norman Rockwell became famous, there was Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874-1951). J. C. Leyendecker was one of the most influential American illustrators of the twentieth century. His illustrations were seen in clothing advertisements, recruiting posters and hundreds of magazine covers for Saturday Evening Post and Collier’s.
