Couple Kissing at Piano (1907). Frank X. Leyendecker (1876-1924). The Saturday Evening Post, July 27, 1907.
FX Leyendecker was the younger brother of the longer lived and more prolific JC Leyendecker. In reality, FX paved the way for JC. He was every bit as colorful, creative, entertaining and flamboyant as his older brother, with an impressive catalog including posters, cover art, book plates, advertising, and more. His covers for Vanity Fair, the humor Life, and Vogue are stand-outs.
