A long overdue project that I had promised to Leif has been a review of the illustrations and paintings of Carl G. Evers.
He was another mid-century artist and illustrator who deserves far more recognition and respect than he has received….especially in this digital culture where gadgets have replaced so much artistic creativity.
As a young illustrator I constantly clipped ads and illustrations in spare time. One of the clip files was labeled "Carl Evers” and the ad subjects were boats and ships, often in industrial settings.
Evers illustrated a fine series for the Philadelphia Electric Company…
... complicated scenes, very technical, but beautifully composed and rendered.
Carl Evers was a masterful sea painter in gouache.
