Though Nebraska native John Falter was best known for the 185 covers he did for the Saturday Evening Post, he was also a highly successful commercial artist, counting Gulf Oil, Arrow Shirts and Schlitz Beer among his many accounts. When the Post ended its run in the 1970’s and the illustration market evaporated, Falter turned his attention to easel paintings of scenes from American History, especially the opening of the West.
