Larry's Vault: Joseph Clement Coll

One of the finest pen and ink illustrators of the first half of the 20th century, hands-down, was Joseph Clement Coll.  Few people today have much familiarity with using a pen dipped in India ink. The look of a pen and ink drawing is never truly duplicated by any form of contemporary marking pen available today. In his day, Coll was one of the masters of the form.

From the Vault, here's an article on Coll from the December 1950 issue of American Artist.


Fortunately, Coll has not been entirely forgotten. 
A few years ago Flesk Publicatons published this collection of Coll's work,
Joseph Clement Coll: The Art of Adventure.
