My ten personal favorite artworks by JC Leyendecker. It is interesting that many of them happen to be Easter illustrations!

Always one of my favorites from Leyendecker even if it is a bit more stylized than many of his other works!

Top:  Norman Rockwell, Boy Graduate, oil on canvas, 74.5 x 36”, 1959.

Bottom:  JC Leyendecker, June Graduate, oil on canvas, 24.5 x 20”, 1920.

Love how clearly the very different attitudes of the two artists come through when you have almost exactly the same subject (and even model!) depicted.

I could not, off the top of my head and with a very cursory internet search, find an exact analogue for the textless crest in the Leyendecker.  It seems awfully familiar though, doesn’t it?  I wonder if it’s something obvious that I’m missing, or if he just made it up.

Love the contrasting styles here.
