Morgan Stinemetz (American/Tennessee, 1886-1969) watercolor and charcoal illustration drawing on Flax illustration board of an ostrich running behind two monkeys. Signed lower right. Image – 11" H x 16 3/8" W. Board – 15" H x 20" W. Possibly for the book "The Cliff Children." Biography: Painter and illustrator Morgan Stinemetz was born in either 1886 or 1890 (sources differ) in Washington, DC and attended art schools in DC and Pennsylvania. 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, margin notations and smudges, bend to right corner.
