Oliver Herford (1863-1935), often hailed as the "American Oscar Wilde," was a British-born American humorist, essayist, and illustrator. After crossing the Atlantic to call the United States his home, Herford's artistic talents flourished. He gained fame for his brilliant and whimsical contributions to literature and art. With a penchant for anthropomorphized animals and clever scenarios, he captured the essence of humor in his essays and poems, gracing the pages of notable publications like Life and The Mentor. Herford's fusion of art and humor made him an influential figure in the world of humorous illustration, and his legacy continues to shine in our extensive collection.
