Al Parker (1906-1985) was the artist who defined the progressive look of illustration from the 1940s through the '60s. He created an idealized reflection of the "Baby Boom" generation with his series of covers for The Ladies' Home Journal in which Mother and Daughter wear matching outfits and enjoy life together. Millions of readers, mostly women, followed his inventive story illustrations in the major magazines. Parker's innovative point of view always made his work stand out from that o (showing 500 of 4078 characters).
