Walter Biggs (1886-1968)
Although he always remained a Southerner at heart, as a youth Walter Biggs traveled to New York City to begin his art study at The Chase School with luminaries Edward Penfield and Robert Henri. He went on to have a long and successful career, illustrating both advertisements and stories in almost all of the major magazines, including Harper’s, Scribner’s, Century, Good Housekeeping, and Cosmopolitan. Although his primary media were watercolor and gouache, he was equally facile with oils, painting with a quick, almost impromptu style. He later taught illustration at both the Art Students League and the Grand Central School of Art, passing his expertise on to such notable illustrators as Pruett Carter and John LaGatta before retiring back to his native Virginia.
