A Fine Romance: Images of Love in Classic American Illustration

Mar 11th • 11:00 am - 5:00 pm • Hilbert Museum

Love is in the air in this assemblage of amorous illustrations drawn from The Hilbert Collection’s impressive selection of classic American illustrations, curated by Hilbert Museum director Mary Platt. Many of the works in this exhibition were created to illustrate romantic fiction in the pages of popular “women’s magazines” of the 1940s to the 1960s—McCall’sRedbookGood Housekeeping – as well as in the Saturday Evening Post and other periodicals.

 The exhibition features works by Joe de Mers, Pruett Carter, Gwen Fremlin, Joe Bowler, Jon Whitcomb and other acclaimed artists from this classic era of American illustration.
