Society of Illustrators Museum of American Illustration

On February 1, 1901, nine artists and one businessman founded the Society of Illustrators with the following credo: The object of the Society shall be to promote generally the art of illustration and to hold exhibitions from time to time.ヤ This simple dictum has held true for over a century.

At a time when illustration was in what has been called its Golden Age, the first monthly dinners were attended by prominent artists including Howard Pyle, Maxfield Parish, N.C. Wyeth, Charles Dana Gibson, Frederic Remington, James Montgomery Flagg, Howard Chandler Christy and special guests such as Mark Twain and Andrew Carnegie.
