Born in Rochester, New York, Guy Hoff trained at the Art School of the Albright Gallery in Buffalo. According to the June 1913 issue of Arts and Decorations, Hoff won a scholarship to the Art Students’ League in New York City for his life drawings’ “masterly draughtsmanship and feeling for planes.” He used that talent to create seven figures for The Saturday Evening Post cover. Hoff also illustrated advertisements for Procter & Gamble and program covers for New York’s Shubert Theater and then sold his first magazine cover to Smart Set, which put him on the national scene.
