This was a ‘golden age’ for illustration: during this period Maclean’s covers featured graphics, not photographs, almost exclusively. Add a comment

My answer to this man’s query as to what my painting was to be was this:

“I am sorry I cannot tell you because what I see can only be described in form and colour, and I will show you when it is finished. To talk about it weakens the power to do it.” This same man, when it was finished, showed the least anticipation and the very least interest, for this man is unique and has purposes of his own too.

-Eric Aldwinckle, 1944
