Morgan Stinemetz (American/Tennessee, 1886-1969) graphite and gouache illustration drawing of two elephants fighting on a savannah. Signed upper left. 16" x 23 1/4" sight, 23" x 30 1/2" matted and framed under glass in narrow black frame. Biography: Painter and illustrator Morgan Stinemetz was born in Washington, DC. He attended the Corcoran Art School, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied under Thomas Anshutz, and the Art Students League in New York. He exhibited in the groundbreaking International Exhibition of Modern Art in 1913 at the Armory in New York. Stinemetz's career was interrupted by World War I, during which he designed camoflauge for US Navy ships. He went on to a career as a prominent illustrator, working for publications including Colliers, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion, Pictorial Review, and Outdoor Life. Stinemetz became known especially as an illustrator of dogs (in particular, Scotties), and judged dog shows throughout the Eastern US and England. In 1939, he accepted a job as art director for the Methodist Publishing House, which eventually brought him to Nashville, Tennessee. There, he became a member of the Tennessee Art League. Stinemetz died in the Nashville area in 1969. CONDITION: Overall toning; previous owner inscription en verso and some tape residue to glass. Not examined out of frame.
