Will Bradley - Part 2


William Henry Bradley (Will Bradley) was an American Art Nouveau illustrator and artist. Nicknamed the "Dean of American Designers" by The Saturday Evening Post, he was the highest paid American artist of the early 20th century.
As an art director for William Randolph Hearst’s publications, he got to know and commissioned works from many illustrators such as Edward Penfield and Maxfield Parrish. His own illustrative style was influenced by Parrish’s. He remained an active and important member of the graphic arts world for the rest of his long life.

For more information on Bradley, and for earlier works, see Part 1 also.
