In the family emigrated to the United States and chose to live in Chicago. His father worked in a brewery owned by a relative and from the limited information available, it sounds like they quickly settled into a comfortable, middle-class life. The three Leyendecker boys were all artistic. Older brother Adolph moved to Kansas City, Missouri, in and established himself as a stained glass artist.
At 15, he became an apprentice at J. He also enrolled in evening classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. They spent two years in France, refining their skills, rubbing shoulders with other artists, and, sadly for Frank, acquiring a serious drug and alcohol habit that would eventually kill him at the age of They rented a shared studio on 32 nd Street and a large townhouse in Washington Square.
Their sister Mary lived with them and took on the role of hostess and housekeeper in lieu of a career or family of her own. Charles Beach cover image from the book by Cutler and Cutler. Busy as they were with their advertising and cover commissions, J. In , Charles A. Beach walked into the studio and into J. Beach became J. Shortly after meeting the Leyendecker brothers, Beach moved into a small apartment on 31 st Street, one block from the studio. In , the Leyendeckers took a step up, renting a large studio in the Beaux Arts building at 40 th Street and Sixth Avenue.
Beach established his residence in the studio and became its manager. Joe, Frank, Mary and their father Peter had moved out of the city in and were living in New Rochelle, although from the sound of it, J. In , J. Like his brother, Frank was also gay but there is no record of him having a regular lover or long-term relationship. Interestingly, he was the one who hired Beach but he probably came to regret that decision.
He and Mary both resented the influence that Beach had over J. While Beach was J. Leyendecker later gave Hamilton the painting—an unusual and gracious gesture on his part. Leyendecker only gave away two Post cover paintings in his life and never sold any of his original paintings—just the images. He appeared in all episodes. Leyendecker was friends with many fellow artists and illustrators, the most famous of whom is probably Norman Rockwell.
I prefer to believe the latter. Why then is Rockwell better known and well remembered? Probably because he has wives, children, and grandchildren to perpetuate his memory and legacy. There is speculation that it was because both of his brothers were gay but there is no way to determine if this is true. While Leyendecker was successful from the minute of his first commission at age 11, probably the pinnacle of his career came during the s.
Walter Winchell, the gossip columnist, was a regular, and his reports of the goings-on helped set fashion trends, smoking and drinking fads, and even deigned which automobiles acceptable—J.

The Roaring Twenties ended with a crash and Leyendecker and Beach also began to scale back their opulent lifestyle.

The golden age of illustration, which lasted from the turn of the century until the mid-thirties, had passed. Leyendecker still held the distinction of being its premier artist. For the last decade of their lives together, J. The post-mortem diagnosis was an acute cerebral occlusion.
Charles followed him in death six months later. Fortunately, he realized that burning J. Later, he sold many at a yard sale with the most expensive painting fetching seven dollars.
I wonder how many of those yard sale paintings are tucked away in attics, waiting to be rediscovered. My attic has been well and thoroughly cleaned, but I can dream for others…. Cutler, L. Leyendecker: American Imagist.
New York: Abrams. Every time something new comes along, be it invention, fad, or changing social more, a backlash from those who resist the change immediately follows. But thinking about the moral degradation of society made me delve back into history a bit to see other issues that have inflamed the masses to overheated rhetoric.
Women had been taking the drug since for severe menstrual cramps; interestingly, there was a dramatic upsurge in the number of women suffering from this disorder when Enovid came on the market. Of course, it was an open secret that one of the side effects of the drug was that it prevented ovulation.
