Description: Woman in white with daisy
Comment: I don't really like to think of all the great illustrators who've died in any particular year.
It's too depressing, especially as the ranks of people who knew the same people that I did also invariably shrinks. The industry lost one of the best and nicest members of the profession this year in the person of Joe Bowler. This piece dates to right around the mid-1960s… so right around fifty years old and it speaks so eloquently to what was going on in the upper magazines of the day… the composition would surely have dominated the pages.
