Description: Watercolor drawing on paper. Signed and dated. Sheet measures 8 3/4" x 7 5/8".

Comments: This original watercolor drawing by Daniel C. Beard includes four drawings from life of people the artist encountered while visiting Michigan in February of 1893. Around this time, Beard worked as an illustrator for books by Mark Twain, Ernest Crosby, and others. The top half of the drawing includes two watercolor drawings, one color and one black-and-white, of "Johny Martin, Saloon Keeper & 'Hoodlum' owner." On the bottom half are two "types" of the Lumber Region of Michigan, where Beard was visiting. Two capped and bearded men with pipes in their mouth face each other, the elaborate patterns on their clothing competing for the viewer's attention. THe skin and hair on the men's faces is simply yet artfully rendered. This original drawing is in very condition with vivid colors. Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer. In 1905, he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, a youth organization that taught American frontier traditions and skills to young boys. In 1910, he merged his organization with the Boy Scouts of America and became actively involved in the Scouts and other youth organizations. This drawing evidences Beard's natural skill as an artist.

Thank you for your kind response. As it turns out, I was able to visit the Argosy on Tuesday. In fact, I arrived shortly after opening and stayed most of the morning, making a number of purchases. I notice that you wrote to me a 10:34 AM, meaning that I was in the store when you sent me an email. One of life's many coincidences... Again, many thanks for your courteous response. Best regards, until my next visit! - Phillip R.
