Ellison Hoover (1888-1955) was an American lithographer, illustrator and cartoonist. His lithographs are beautiful black and white representations of rural and urban landscapes complemented by faint, ghostly details, leaving much of the viewer’s imagination to wander and fill in ambiguous spaces. Hoover was also a very well known cartoonist for the New York Herald Tribune and the Brooklyn Eagle Newspaper, illustrating daily comic strips for a series titled “Mr. and Mrs.” From 1930 to 1947. He studied at the Cleveland School of Art and the Art Students League in New York.
