Elbert McGran Jackson graduated from Georgia Tech University with a degree in architecture, but while in school, he realized that he loved illustration and went back to school to study art at night. He had a special flair for posing and painting women to make them look very glamorous, and he used his architectural background to paint interestingly detailed settings. Although many of his paintings involve romance and high society, he was equally comfortable painting illustrations for murder mysteries and manly adventures. Many of his works appeared on the covers of Colliers, Ladies Home Journal and The Saturday Evening Post.
