E F Ward
(1892 - 1990)

Edmund Franklin Ward lived and worked primarily in White Plains New York and often found inspiration there (note 004A below, where he jotted the subject's location on the back of the board: 21 Lake Street, White Plains, NY). A friend of Norman Rockwell at the Art Students' League, the duo set-up a studio together, unbeknownst to them, over a brothel! Early oils were as authoritative and dramatic as any of the more established artists. He could capture intimate, delicate scenes as well as large, action-filled dramas, and even comedy with a sure touch. Among the slicks that hired his services: Youth's Companion, Liberty, Ladies' Home Journal, Redbook., Pictorial Review, McCall's, Country Home, Country Gentleman, Saturday Evening Post, Woman's Home Companion, American, Collier's. Historical book illustration, ad work, murals (e. g. White Plains Public Library), and government commissions during both World Wars rounded out his career. He continued to paint long after he left the illustration field.
