Charles Sheldon Art

CHARLES SHELDON (USA, B. 1889)

Charles Sheldon was a prolific American illustrator, born in 1889. He created many movie magazine covers featuring Golden Age Hollywood icons. The pastels he created for Photoplay, from 1925–30, included glamorous depictions of Hollywood film stars, like Clara Bow, Mae West, Jean Harlow, Greta Garbo, Gilda Gray, Mary Pickford and numerous other Hollywood enchantresses. Unlike many movie magazine illustrators, who primarily worked off publicity photos, many of these stars sat for him. Along with his work for Photoplay, the artist worked for Screenland, Movie Classic and Radio Digest magazines.
