About the Artist

Joseph Pennell
Joseph Pennell launched his career as an illustrator by selling picturesque drawings of south Philadelphia to Schribner’s Monthly in 1881. Following the success of his sketches in New Orleans, published in George W. Cable’s book The Creoles of Louisiana (1884), he married Elizabeth Robins, formerly his collaborator on a Century magazine article. the couple moved to London and became friends with the American artist James McNeill Whistler. Pennell, a prolific artist and writer, experimented with new graphic techniques and sought to draw critical attention to book illustration. The couple returned to the United States in 1917, and Pennell taught for several years at the Art Students’ League in New York City. Through Pennell’s bequest, the Library acquired their collection of books, manuscripts and graphic art.
