Alonzo Myron Kimball
Alonzo Myron Kimball (August 14, 1874 – August 27, 1923) was an American portrait performer and illustrator. A native of Wisconsin, Kimball received his art training in Chicago, New York, and Paris. Early in his career he specialized in portraiture, especially paintings of female subjects, but during the first decade of the 20th century he as well as became one of the leading scrap book illustrators in the United States as skillfully a lid artist for national periodicals such as Scribner's Magazine, Collier's, and The Saturday Evening Post. After 1914, Kimball began applying his talents increasingly to classified ad advertising, which included designing theatrical posters for the film company Pathé and illustrating newspaper and magazine promotions for a variety of products.
