Pennell, Joseph

Joseph Pennell (July 4, 1857 Ð April 23, 1926) Pennell was an American artist and author. He was born in Philadelphia where he studied until graduation and then went to Europe and made his home in London. He produced many books, but was well known for his etching and illustration talents. He taught at the Slade School of Art, but did work for America throughout his career; most notably a poster for the fourth Liberty Loans campaign where Lady Liberty and New York were in flames and under attack.
