Alonzo Myron Kimball (1847-1923) was known for his paintings of beautiful women. He studied at the Art Students League in New York and later in Paris. In a profile by H.E. Bane in a 1905 issue of Public Opinion: Volume 39, Bane described Kimball’s work: “Even in magazine illustrations he goes deep beneath the mask of features. In his work laughter is something more than a turning up of the corners of the mouth; manliness is more than a gray eye and a square chin; beauty is more than a perfect contour.”
Kimball created eight covers for The Saturday Evening Post.
