John Newton Howitt (1885-1958), a graduate of the Art Students League (other grads: Homer, Gibson, Pyle), started working professionally in 1907 as a painter of portraits, landscapes, and covers, and an illustrator of interior artwork for many "slick" magazines as well. Howitt had a parallel career as a fine artist, even exhibiting his work in major galleries in the 1920s. He produced a huge volume of work despite crippling Polio for which he wore an iron brace on his right leg.
