Biography  
William Hurd Lawrence


Lawrence, William Hurd   (1866-1938)
 
"Invincible!"  By Charles B. Driscoll

Some beautiful watercolor landscapes attracted my attention in a New York gallery a few days ago. There were a whole room full of them. Gorgeous coloring, delicate blending, imaginative drawing.

I spent some time examining these unusual pictures. The skill of the artists hand amazed me. So I asked the proprietor of the gallery about this William Hurd Lawrence, whose signature was found on the pieces.

William Hurd Lawrence was a well known illustrator twenty years ago. He succeeded the great Howard Pyle as chief illustrator for Harper’s Weekly, now defunct, but then a great magazine.
