Henry Hutt

Henry Hutt (1875-1950) sold his first picture to LIFE magazine at the age of 16. His illustrations were very influential in setting fashion for the up-to-date female of the time. He studied at the Chicago Art Institute.

His Henry Hutt Picture Book was a popular gift book in 1908.

Now .. a little bit of not so nice news about poor old Henry!
