Following his honorable discharge from the Army, Pugliese enrolled in the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where he studied under Harry Fisk, Ben Dale, and Burne Hogarth, honing his own skills as an artist. Carl also had a passion for great illustration art and collected works by many of the most renowned artist-illustrators of the time.
The auction contains 150 lots of great illustration art, including works by Howard Pyle, Tom Lovell, J.C. Leyendecker, Dean Cornwell, John McDermott, and Herbert Morton Stoops, amongst many others. There are a large number of single Norman Price paintings/illustrations, as well as groups he did for books. Works for The Rogues Moon, Treasure Island and My Cousin Will Rogers are represented in this auction, as well as other great examples of Price's work.
