Publisher: The National Press Club, Washington, D. C.
Publication Date: 1958
9" x 6". 13pp. Stapled illustrated wrappers. Mild soiling, else near fine condition. A sort of tribute to Lohr, a noted commercial artist, painter and photographer. Until around 1920, Lohr's specialization was toward fine arts. He later became interested in photography, and was associated with the Steiglitz Group. In 1916, he and artist Charles Logasa set up their own mini Armory show, designed after the orginal 1913 show in NYC. Lohr's career then shifted toward the applied arts, and he was art director of the Washington Herald until 1922. He then began his own business, the George Lohr Studios of Art, Design, and Photography, which he ran until 1972. Lohr was a founding member of Washington's AIGA chapter, and Art Directors Club, and served as president of both organizations. This booklet includes text about and illustrations of Lohr by Leo Hershfield (known as "Dean of Courtroom Artists"), artist and caricaturist Charles Dunn, Ralph Patterson, multi-talented artist and illustrator Paul Hoffmaster, and Brian Brown. The printed text of this book is from the hand written original by illuminator and calligrapher Enid Eder Perkins, Bookseller Inventory # 25558
