This is image #2 of my on-going series sharing the pages of my late maternal grandmother’s scrap book which she collected in the 30s and 40s.
I don’t know this artist. I can’t make out his signature; “Matt Charsic(?) Charsiac? What’s the word, fellow illustration buffs? David Clemons a fellow Facebook Illustration Fan, gave me the illustrator's name, "Matt Clark".
societyillustrators.org gives me further information:
"Benton and Matt Clark were born and raised in Coshocton, Ohio, into a family that was centered around horses. Their father was a harness maker by profession and an expert horseman. They developed an instinctive sense of equine anatomy and action, which was later to play a key role in both of their careers.
