A "LIFE" Magazine "Albert D. Blashfield" Gallery


ALBERT D. BLASHFIELD (1860-1920) was a personal favorite of John Ames Mitchell. He joined the staff of LIFE in the early 1890's and remained an important illustrator until his death. His major contribution was LIFE's cupid which floats through the pages. His style was striking and handsome but never frilly. He decorated title pages as well as in-house advertisements. He also illustrated several of John Ames Mitchell's books.
