Description

    George Brehm (1878-1966) - Attributed - Original Story Illustration (c.1930). George Brehm is well remembered for his talent in illustrating stories about children. No doubt his small-town upbringing lent to his gift of conveying these images with an openness and honesty that touched the viewer. His covers and interior illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post are some of the finest examples of the artist's work. This offering, attributed to Brehm, depicts a young boy surrounded by historical figures and places; he is obviously enthralled by what he is learning. Note that there is a radio in the background, but that the images are rising from the book in front of him -- a wonderful testament to the knowledge, power, and adventure of reading. This image was most likely published as a story illustration. It is rendered in charcoal on board, and measures approximately 22 x 28.
