William Ladd Taylor
William Ladd Taylor (1854-1926) was an American illustrator, born at Grafton, Mass. He studied art in Boston and New York, and in Paris under Boulanger and Lefebvre in 1884-85. His drawings, many of which first appeared in magazines, are essentially narrative in type and show keen understanding of human nature, with careful, historical accuracy. He published several volumes of his work which contained illustrations of the nineteenth century in New England, the pioneer West, Longfellow, the Psalms, old songs, American life, American literature, and the Old Testament.
