Ernest Hamlin Baker (1889-1975) was born in Rhode Island. He was a self-taught illustrator and was famous for his painting of George Marshall. He attended Colgate College and was soon commissioned to create artwork for Fortune. He created eleven Fortune Magazine covers from 1929 to 1941, as well as several portraits, and over 300 covers for Time Magazine.
