Artist Publishes Book Of Portraits
Harrison Fisher was born in Brooklyn, New York but spent most of his youth in San Francisco until he turned 21 years old. He then moved back to New York where he began his highly successful career as a magazine illustrator. Harrison Fisher never married, but his “secretary,” Kate Clemens was also his lifetime partner. Fisher’s portraits of women rival Charles Dana Gibson’s “Gibson Girl” for popularity at the time.
On August 24, 1912 Harrison Fisher’s AMERICAN GIRLS IN MINIATURE was published by Charles Scribner & Sons with 32 color plates and one Black & White. It sells for 75 cents.
