Biography  
Hamilton King


Hamilton King (1871–1941)[2] was a prominent illustrator who worked in the late 1800s and early 1900s.[3] King illustrated the "Coca-Cola girls" for calendars from 1910 to 1913. The Coca-Cola calendar work was considered significant because the artist's signature appeared in all printed matter for Coca-Cola, including serving trays.

King became well known for his "Hamilton King Girls", significantly working on behalf of Turkish Trophies Cigarettes. A majority of this collection is held by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Additional collections of the artist are held by the Smithsonian Institution.
