Thomas Fogarty, American (1873-1938) Illustrator, is known for nostalgic pen and ink illustrations depicting an earlier era, especially simple homespun subjects. He worked in many mediums, but was especially noted for pen and ink, o wash and crayon, as exemplified by his interpretive pictures for the David Grayson books, and illustrations for 'Sailing Alone Around the World' by Joshua Slocum.
For many years, Thomas Fogarty was a teacher at the Art Students' League; among his pupils were Walter Biggs, McClelland Barclay and Norman Rockwell. Besides Fogarty's instruction in composition, Rockwell is said to recall that his teacher conveyed his "enthusiasm about illustration", and that it was Fogarty who sent him to a publisher, where he got a job illustrating a children's book.
