Howard Chandler Christy (1873 - 1952) was an illustrator famous for his “Christy Girl”, a society girl image similar to a “Gibson Girl”. He studied under William Merritt Chase and started his artistic career as a combat artist during the Spanish-American war. Later he moved to book and magazine line illustration and painted in his later years. In 1940, his mural “Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States” was installed in the US Capitol Building and is still on display there. was illustrator famous for his “Christy Girl”, a society girl image similar to a “Gibson Girl”.

In 1940, his mural “Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States” was installed in the US Capitol Building and is still on display there. Franklin Booth (1874 – 1948), was one of the most influential artists of the Golden Age of illustration. He had a self-taught style that resulted from mistaking wood engravings as pen and ink drawings as a child and copying them to produce drawings with detailed line work and beautiful tone created by his use of line. He later trained briefly at the Chicago Art Institute and was widely known for and an unusual compositional style that gives a feeling of soaring space and height. His style greatly influenced the work of his contemporary, Howard Pyle, and it can also be seen in Maxfield Parrish's work, since he was Pyle's student. His work appeared in most of the major American magazines, and heproduced cover art and illustrations for a series of books, art for both the WW I and WWII war efforts, and for advertising. In his later years he co-founded and taught at the Phoenix Art Institute.
