John LaGatta enjoyed painting women more than anything else.  It worked well for him as an illustrator and as a result, he and his wife were able to live a very comfortable lifestyle.  His career was substantially taken with illustrating women for romantic stories, as well as creating exotic fashion illustrations, and eye-catching advertising pictures of his beautifully idealized women.

LaGatta’s images appeared in the nation’s famous most publications; Life, The La (showing 500 of 4235 characters).
