The Violinist and His Assistant, Saturday Evening Post Cover- SOLD By Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874-1951)


The Saturday Evening Post, December 23, 1916, cover illustration.

This timely touching rendering of the old violinist and his assistant displays all the expressive gifts of J. C. Leyendecker’s style in this Dec. 23, 1916 The Saturday Evening Post cover.  It is a triumph of detail as well as execution.  The old man’s costume and the scruffy little dog are aimed directly at the heart, and the battered hat in the dog’s mouth is the perfect touch.
