History The Golden Age of Illustration was a period of unprecedented excellence in book and magazine illustration. While generally attributed to the period from 1880 to 1920, it was influenced by previous art movements and made the techniques of those art styles more appealing and available to the average person. The styles and innovations of the illustrators had impact on future advertising and commercial art styles, especially in the United States. It would also later inspire the art movement known as “Pop Art..” Before the invention of lithography as a color printing technique, most illustrations in books and other print media, were black and white etchings. Honore Daumier was one of the earliest political cartoonists and used his skill to skewer politicians as well as creating paintings of great emotional power. Initially, color illustration was used to enhance popular novels and children’s books. As the demand grew, other books added illustrations as a method of making them more appealing to buyers. The surge of illustrations made specifically for books, developed from advances in print technology which allowed for accurate and inexpensive reproduction of art, combined with popular demand. The driving force here were posters by artists such as French Impressionist, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Czech Art Nouveau artist, Alphonse Mucha. In Europe, Golden Age artists were influenced by the Pre-Raphealites and by design-oriented movements sucha s the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau, and Les Nabis. Leading artists included Aubrey Beardsley, Walter Crane and Kay Neilsen. American illustration of this period was centered on a style called Brandywine Valley. This style was established by Howard Pyle and carried on by his students, who included NC Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Frank Schoonover and Edwin Austin Abbey. Other illustrators spread ideas, styles, and fashions thanks to the colorful and attractive nature of their work. Illustration schools still exist, using newer technology but still striving for that suspended sense of reality. Sports illustration is another area where cameras sometimes cannot capture the moment. These illustrations are from a former Sports Illustrator of the Year, Bart Forbes. Notice how he applies all of the art elements and design skills in his work. Some specialties in illustration include:
-Medical illustration in which procedures and structures are explained.
-Technical illustrations provide detailed images for buyers to better visualize products.
