The Art of The Illustrator by Percy V Bradshaw was published by The Press Art School, Forest Hill, London 1918. In 1918 Percy Bradshaw contacted 20 of the leading illustrators of the day and commissioned each of them for a special illustration.

Each artist was given an entirely free hand as to subject, the only stipulation being that the painting or drawing should be representative of his/her technique and that each stage in its composition should be shown. Bradshaw then reproduced in 6 plates each step in the artistic process and published the 6 lithographs in a portfolio with a 12 page introduction and description of the process within a card folder.

Artists in this series are Lawson Wood, F.H. Townsend, Fortunino Matania, Harry Rountree, Claude A Shepperson, Bert Thomas, William Heath Robinson, Frank Reynolds, Cyrus Cuneo, William Russell Flint, Charles Brock, Spenser Pryse, Warwick Reynolds, Edmund Sullivan, Balliol Salmon, H.M. Bateman, Louise Wright, W Hatherell, Dudley Hardy and Bernard Partridge.

Highly sought after these portfolios were a ground breaking idea and very popular at the time. A great way to discover the secrets and techniques of some of the worlds' greatest illustrators.

'A Canadian Camp Fire' is the black and white oils drawing demonstrated by Cyrus Cuneo RI.
