Ernest Haskell

Ernest Haskell (1876-1925) was an American artiste and illustrator, internationally well-known in his lifetime and remembered for his etchings, as competently as engravings, pen-and-ink drawings, lithographs and watercolors. He was a explorer in the arena of theatrical posters. He created many portraits and caricatures of luminaries of the day. During World War I he was commissioned by the United States Army to build camouflage painting. Haskell's etchings and intaglio prints are considered by critics and scholars to be his most important contribution.
