Celebrate the four-decade career of award-winning illustrator Wendell Minor, one of our nation's premier historical illustrators. Minor drew his way through childhood in Aurora, Illinois, inspired by the richly illustrated magazines that were so much a part of American life during the mid-twentieth century; today he travels throughout the United States to research, draw and paint on location, and immerse himself in the subject at hand. This retrospective looks at the many cover illustrations Minor has created over the years, as well as his 25th anniversary illustrating children's books, each inspired by his love of history, art, science, and the natural world.
