John Falter was born in the small town of Plattsmouth, Nebraska in 1910, a grandson of steamboat and covered wagon pioneers. He became a successful illustrator admired by peers as noteworthy as Norman Rockwell by the 1940s. During his seventy-two year lifetime, Falter produced more than 200 Saturday Evening Post illustrations. He has illustrated places across America from the ìGolden Gate Bridgeî to ìGramercy Parkî. One idea that is prominent throughout all of his works is the artistís love for America. He once said, ìIf you are not in love with what you are trying to put on canvas, you had better quit.
