A new exhibition coming to Society of Illustrators in New York.
John F. Gould (1906 – 1996) had a long career in art, both as an artist and as an art instructor. He was a well-known lecturer on art, particularly oriental art. In 1957, John and Mary Gould established the Bethlehem Art Gallery in Cornwall, NY. John was born in Worcester, MA, studied art and graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, and later instructed at Pratt for 22 years. He was a prominent illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post for more than 8 years and for many national corporations.
In the world of fine arts, John Gould was a successful painter. His oil, acrylics, watercolors, and pen and ink originals are in many private collections. For subject matter, he was partial to historical subjects, especially in the Hudson River Valley from the Statue of Liberty to Albany, NY.
For over 20 years, Mr. Gould was an art consultant/illustrator for the General Electric Company in Schenectady, NY, and the Erie, PA Locomotive Division. His paintings of railroad subjects can be seen in executive offices of railroads world-wide.
