Illustration by Henry Patrick Raleigh Henry Patrick Raleigh: A Giant From the Era of the Golden Age of American Illustration On display in the Third Floor Hall of Fame Gallery Henry Patrick Raleigh (1880-1944) was one of the most prolific illustrators of all time. His works appeared in numerous publications including San Francisco Examiner, Journal, New York World, and The Saturday Evening Post. He became famous for his illustrations of high society which appeared in a series of Maxwell House Coffee advertisements, and was a star among his peers during the Golden Age of American Illustration (1900-1930). Among his many awards were the Shaw Prize for Illustration at the Salmagundi Club in 1916 and the Gold Medal for Advertising Art in America in 1926. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1982. Learn more. Bob Fingerman is the award-winning, Eisner-nominated, internationally published creator of comics and graphic novels such as Beg the Question, You Deserved It, White Like She and Recess Pieces, as well as the novels Bottomfeeder and Pariah. In Bottomfeeder, Fingerman took on the vampire genre, tossing away the typical gothic and romantic trappings in favor of telling the down to earth story of a working class Queens-bred vampire. In his graphic novel, From the Ashes, he pitted he and his wife, Michele, against the mutant-rich post-apocalyptic ruins of New York City. His most recent offering is the massive Maximum Minimum Wage, from Image Comics.
