Bingham Gallery: Keith Ward

Keith Ward
(American, 1906-2000)

"If you learned to read with Dick & Jane, thrilled by the magnificent horse illustrations in the Black Stallion, remember Elsie the Cow, fell in love with the playful Texaco Dalmatian Pups, or know Elmer, the trademark on Elmer's Glue, then you know of Keith Ward's work. Ward a renowned impressionist, was the gifted illustrator who painted those enduring images on the American consciousness. Like Norman Rockwell, Keith Ward is part of our "Americana"; illustrating for so many magazines and advertisements, such as Boy's Life, Outdoor Life, Phillips 66, Bordon Dairy Co., U.S. Steel (and many others). For more than 50 years Keith Ward has been part of our lives."

Ward is the illustrator for The Night Before Christmas published by Whitman Publishing MCMXXXV. ebay
