American Illustrators
Advertisement for Carrier Corp. refrigeration, Robert Fawcett

In his long career, Robert Fawcett was best known for the series of illustrations he did for Sherlock Holmes, written by Conan Doyle's nephew Adrian Conan Doyle and John Dickson Carr. There were a dozen stories that appeared. The first ran in Good Housekeeping, and the other 11 were published in Collier's Magazine in 1953. Looking at this series you can understand why Fawcett was considered one of the truly great illustrators. One of the hallmarks of Fawcett's work was his powerful sense of value. While the majority of his illustrations were finished color pieces, like Rembrandt, it was the black and white tonal structure underneath (along with his precise draftsmanship) that brought the work to life.
