Howard Chandler Christy

Howard Chandler Christy
(1872 - 1952)

Christy's career began as an illustrator, but he eventually became one of the most popular portrait painters of his day with subjects ranging from military recruitment posters to American presidents including Franklin Roosevelt. Alexander is the personification of Horatio Alger's popular books from the late nineteenth century in which a poor boys makes good. From an impoverished background, Alexander became the owner and president of his own shipping company by the time he was 28.
