Golden Age of American Illustration

Jerry Weiss’s father, Morris Weiss, was a very successful cartoonist who also collected pictures from the Golden Age of American Illustration. Jerry Weiss, who was featured in the June 2008 issue of The Artist’s Magazine, credits his freewheeling approach to growing up with the works of fabulous draftsmen all around him.
