Stevan Dohanos
Two Dories

1941

About

"Two Dories" is a small wood engraving by one of this country's great graphic artists. A true slice of Americana. This impression is #25 of 50. Stevan Dohanos American, 1907 – 1994 Dohanos, a native of Ohio, studied at the Cleveland Museum Art School and later under the master of lithography, Stow Wengenroth. He created fine art that gloried in the beauty of the everyday object or situation. He also created illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post, producing more than 125 magazine covers between 1943 and 1959. He is second only to Norman Rockwell in the number of covers produced for the Post. He was elected to the Hall of Fame of the American Society of Illustrators. Dohanos was considered the Cultural Spokesman for the Saturday Evening Post because of his clear visual images and the poignant messages of Americana they revealed. He cherished this relationship and relished the differences between his work and that of Rockwell and other Post favorites. Often times he would use images from Westport, Connecticut, and readers could catch a glimpse of their neighbors in the backgrounds of scenes depicting everyday activities. Dohanos came to represent one of the essential American magazine illustrators. His images were generally slightly humorous and optimistic; they manifested the best of American ideals and were always familiar to the reader. Stevan Dohanos was considered “The Delineator of the Heart of America.” Stevan Dohanos’ paintings are in the collections of the Avery Memorial of Hartford, The Cleveland Museum, New Britain Museum of American Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
