The UT Downtown Gallery is pleased to present a selection of sketches and lithographs from the Ewing Gallery Permanent Collection. On display are working and finished sketches and print portfolios from four illustrators working during the “Golden Age” of illustration, Harrison Cady, Norman Rockwell, F.R. Gruger, and Walter Haskell Hinton. The four men whose works are in the gallery, worked tirelessly drafting ad campaigns, illustrating children’s books, comic strips, and covers for weekly publications, such as The Saturday Evening Post. The Ewing Gallery is fortunate to have acquired many of these works through generous gifts to the gallery. We hope you enjoy this opportunity to see the works of these four illustrators from the Ewing Collection exhibited together for the first time.

Join us on Friday, December 2 from 5-9PM at the UT Downtown Gallery!
