Comment: Though not really a household name today... and the reasons for that are not all that clear... at least not to me... Street was a solidly popular illustrator of his day. Very much in the Harvey Dunn - Dean Cornwell- Dan Content - Saul Tepper style of illustrating. Thick bravura brushstrokes expressed in a manner designed to have text worked around them... as was very much the approach for a relatively brief period.
