Country Gentleman: For The American
Farmer And His Family

Woman On A Bucking Bronco, Frank Hoffman, 19 April, 1924

I found this, and a wealth of post-Victorian culture while poking around for some images of Paul Newman, (RIP). It's basically the entire catalog of cover art published by Country Gentleman and The Saturday Evening Post from about 1900 through the early 70's. The Curtis Publishing Company, publishes the catalog online.

There are illustrations and photographs by some famous folks as well as the really obscure. I'd love to post a couple of dozen of these, but I'll just do a couple, and let folks choose their own. Some of the images are of pretty good resolution, some are not. It's the company which manages the rights and licensing , after all.
