This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Edward Windsor Kemble (1861–1933) was a self-taught artist whose work reveals a strong sense of humor and an acute observation of character. His outlook was similar to that of A.B. Frost, and like Frost, he illustrated many of the Uncle Remus stories by Joel Chandler Harris.

Kemble illustrated several other famous books, including Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, and Puddin’ Head Wilson, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and Washington Irving’s Knickerbocker History of New York.

His humor made him an effective political cartoonist as well. He had special rapport with African-American characters, and drew them alternatively with great empathy or with the most outrageous of stereotypes.

Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Illustrator and cartoonist, Edward Kemble was born in Sacramento, CA on Jan. 18, 1861, the son of the founder of Alta California. A self-taught artist, by age 20 Kemble was contributing to national magazines, such as Harper's, Century, and Leslie's.

During the 1880s his illustrations were of the soldiers and Indians of the West; he later specialized in humorous Negro subjects.

He was a resident of New Rochelle, NY and Ridgefield, CT until his death in the latter on Sept. 19, 1933.
