Charles Stanley Reinhart was one of the select group of young artists who were to launch the Golden Age of American Illustration. Under the tutelage of Charles Parsons, head of the art department of Harper & Brothers in the 1870s, the group included E. A. Abbey, Robert Blum, A. B. Frost and Howard Pyle. Reinhart was the senior member, having begun his association as early as 1871, after his art studies in Paris and Munich. He was an expert draftsman in pen and ink, employing fine lines in modeling forms. His gouache illustrations suffered from the translation to wood engravings, but indicate his good control of values. Reinhart was also an active exhibitor, winning a medal at the Paris Exposition in 1889, and the Temple Gold Medal from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1888.
