Artist of the moment…..Dal Holcomb

Dal Holcomb was born in Youngstown, Ohio in the year 1901. Holcomb was one of the premier illustrators of his day working on national advertising campaigns with companies including Listerine mouthwash, General Tire, and Mazda Lamps. In addition the artist was renowned for his celebrity caricature works.

For many of his work he signed them with only an “H.”

His favorite mediums were watercolor and gouache.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Dal Holcomb passed away in 1978.

I really enjoyed the way the artist was able to nail his likenesses on his caricature work. Some other caricaturists covered here include Gerald Scarfe and Sebastian Kruger.
