Jesse Howard (1885–1983) was an American artist known for his hand-lettered signs.[1] A self-taught artist, Howard's first professional recognition came when Art in America magazine profiled him in 1968.[2][3][4] Howard worked from what he called "Sorehead Hill", a 20-acre farm in Fulton, Missouri where he both produced and displayed his work.[2][5]

His work is included in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum,[6] the American Folk Art Museum[7] and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.[8]
