Frederic Rodrigo Gruger (1871-1953)

 Illustration from “Show Boat” by Edna Ferber,
Woman’s Home Companion, April 1926,
Carbon pencil & wash, 10.75 x 16.5" 

Time magazine, at one time, proclaimed Frederic Rodrigo Gruger "the dean of U.S. magazine illustrators”.
For more examples of Gruger’s work and a detailed description of his technique you can go to Illustration Art, where I borrowed the following pictures.
