Biography  
Norman Price


Biography from the Archives of askART

Illustrator, Norman Mills Price was born in Brampton, Ontario (1877) and began his studies at the Ontario School of Art. Around 1901 he spent time in London, studying at the Goldsmith's Institute; Westminster School of Art; and with Cruikshank. While in London, he was the founder of Carlton Studios.

He later went on to Paris, studying at the Academie Julian, with J.P. Laurens and R.E. Miller. He did freelance work in Paris until an assignment in Belgium for Century brought him to the attention of other American publishers. In 1911, he had a studio in New York City, and worked for such publication as Harper's, Cosmopolitan, and Liberty.

He illustrated the novels: "The Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare (1905), The Rogue's Moon (1929), Leif Erikson the Lucky (1939), Treasure Island," and other books. Price is best known for his depiction of pirates and Vikings.
