  • Ludwig Bemelmans (1898- 1962) was a painter, illustrator, and writer for both children and adults. He is best known for his series of books featuring Madeleine. European-born Ludwig Bemelmans emigrated to the United States around 1905 and found work in various hotels and restaurants. He served in the U.S. Army during WWI and in the 1920’s he began his career as an artist and author. While relatively unsuccessful at the start, he met with a great deal of success upon the publication of his first Madeleine book in 1939. In addition to his writing and illustration career, he is also known for the wonderful murals on the walls of Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle Hotel in New York City.
     
    This charming illustration in Bemelmans’ recognizable style is to promote readership of The New York Times. It states its message of, "You Get More in The New York Times – More News, More Enjoyment, Read it Every Day". The touch of humor in the illustration draws the viewers’ eye, very effectively, to the message line. It is part of a small series commissioned by the newspaper in the late 1950’s. In this poster we see the man reading his newspaper surrounded by a group of chickens seeking his attention and food.
