Tom Lovell was already a successful illustrator for the New York slicks and pulps—Maxwell Grant’s The Shadow springs immediately to mind—when World War II rolled around. Lovell lived in New Rochelle, New York, and Westport, Connecticut, not far from Norman Rockwell, Mead Schaeffer, Harold Von Schmidt, and other artists who made their homes a train ride from the magazine offices and would spend the war years with John Clymer, illustrating Leatherneck, the publication of the U.S. Marine Corps. But Native American life had fascinated Lovell since his boyhood and he eventually heeded his true calling: painting the American West.
