About: Elbert McGran Jackson's Valentine's Day cover for The Saturday Evening Post with a woman in historic costume surrounded by a lacy frame is reminiscent of an antique greeting card.
A versatile artist who created over 30 Post covers as well as many story illustrations, Jackson was considered especially skilled at portraying seductive women. Trained as an architect, he was mentored early in his career by established illustrators.
