John Ford Clymer

John Clymer was born in Ellensburg, WA. 1907. Clymer first studied art through an Art Instruction School correspondence course.   Early pen and ink drawings, from the age of 15, demonstrate his serious pursuit of art as well as his incredible talent.


He continued his studies  in Canada, where he spent eight years illustrating for Canadian magazines.

In Westport, Connecticut, Clymer established his career as an illustrator for American magazines,  The Saturday Evening Post.  He created 80 covers for The Saturday Evening Post.  He also illustrated many pulp fiction covers, including the illustrations for the book The Yearling.

It's important to look  past his subject matter (wild life, historic depictions and the vast body of 'Americana' paintings) to avoid categorizing Clymer as a genre artists.

Examing each work on their individual merit exposes Clymer as a master of techniques- Impressionistic, energetic expressionistic gestures- style and color.


All these elements combine to reveal a body of work demanding more thoughtful inspection, and Clymer as an important artist beyond narrow interpretations.
