This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Henry Hintermeister (b. 1897 / d. 1972)

Henry Hintermeister was born in 1897 in New York.  

His father John Henry Hintermeister was an illustrator as well.  Father and son often worked as a duo, from the 1890's to the 1940's, under the pseudonym Hy Hintermeister.  They became well known producing over 1,000 of illustrations; John Henry and Henry were often compared to Norman Rockwell with their illustration storytelling.  The duo produced a series of calendars depicting American history from 1775-1787.  They used identical signatures making their illustrations nearly impossible to distinguish.

As a solo artist, Henry Hintermeister is most know for American themed paintings as well as his paintings of animals.

Works Include:
Two Setter on Point
Mallard March
Sparky the Fire Safety Dog
The Foundation of American Government (
c. 1925)
Gramps! series

"Country Gentleman" cover illustration
(Sept. 1936)
