The brushwork of Walt Louderback was broad and direct, with few subtleties. Yet for all his sledgehammer technique, romanticism permeated his pictures. His characters and their emotions seemed heroic, larger than life. For the reader, the vicarious thrill of participating in the adventure was thereby heightened as well.

    Louderback was born in Valparaiso, Indiana, and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. He lived in Europe for some time in the ‘twenties, delivering his pictures by ship. He was a regular contributor to Hearst’s International, Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping. A painter as well as an illustrator, he experimented with a stylized Cubist-influenced approach. He was awarded the Daughters of Indiana Purchase prize and given a special honorable mention at the Hoosier Salon in 1933.
