Overview

Harrison Fisher: Defining the American Beauty is the largest picturial guide to this popular artist ever produced. Nearly 450 color and black and white reproductions of his magazine covers and book illustrations document this important artist's career. Harrison Fisher enjoyed incomparable fame from 1905 to 1920, achieving celebrity status and holding the enviable position of national beauty judge. Fisher portrayed the American woman as an outgoing, lively personality, wealthy and healthy. She rode horses, played tennis, and motored in the new automobiles while holding court for admiring men. Fisher's portrayals of such beauties added market value to dozens of novels as well as hundreds of magazines which clamored for his art on both their covers and inside pages. With Fisher's work extremely hot on the collectibles market, new and seasoned buyers alike will benefit from the advice of antiques dealer and Price Guide author Bruce Magnotti.
