About The Artist:

John Fleming Gould was a prolific American freelance illustrator whose works appeared in pulp magazines as well as major publications such as The Saturday Evening Post, Redbook, Country Gentleman, Colliers, and Popular Science.

Gould was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating from Bushwick High School, Gould attended the Pratt Institute of Brooklyn. He finished his studies in 1926 and started to illustrate scenes for pulp magazines such as Clues Detective, Wings, Astounding Stories, Aces, and several others. In 1929, Gould started teaching at the Pratt Institute and continued to freelance. He continued to work at Pratt until 1951, when he began to teach at the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art. In 1957, Gould retired and opened a private art school and gallery in Newburgh, New York.

This illustration was made for a 1932 issue of Delineator Magazine, a popular women's magazine featuring fashion patterns, short stories, and home and decorating advice. This sketch of a countryside fiddle player encountering a modern school teacher is a humorous rendering of two different worlds colliding and provides the viewer with an intriguing narrative.
