Will James in the Magazines
On view through September, 2024
Yellowstone Art Museum

Will James is well-known for his independent writings, especially “Smoky.” Meanwhile, his work also reached millions via publications in the magazines of his day, beginning with “Sunset” in 1920 and expanding elsewhere to appeal to a wide range of interests. In addition, his drawings appeared as illustrations for the works of other authors, as one-page contributions rather like “New Yorker” cartoons, and as images for his own stories.
