About the Poster: Harrison Fischer received his childhood training from his father, who was a landscape painter. He later enrolled at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art and at the San Francisco Art Association when the family moved to San Francisco. He quickly found work at the local newspapers, but it was after he relocated to New York that he became well-known for his drawings of beautiful women. His "Fischer Girl" came to rival the women of fellow illustrators Howard Chandler Christy and Charles Dana Gibson in popularity. This newfound fame earned Fischer commissions for covers, books, postcards, and even candy boxes. Fisher's work appeared regularly on the cover of Cosmopolitain magazine from the early 1900s until his death in 1934.
