Victor Coleman Anderson (1882-1937) was a son of the Hudson River School painter Frank Anderson. In addition to early guidance from his father, Victor studied at the Pratt Institute and later with well-established artists such as Birge Harrison, Hobart Nichols, and Herman Dudley Murphy.

Anderson became a popular illustrator in the 20s and 30s and his paintings were reproduced in some of the leading magazines of the day including LifeWoman’s Home Companion, and The Ladies‘ Home JournalCollier’s, and Country Gentlemen.

His work was exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the Salmagundi Club, and the prominent Grand Central Art Galleries in New York.

The artist’s most popular works were scenes of everyday rural life. Reproductive prints of many of these illustrations are widely available and still popular today. Quality original paintings are obviously much harder to find.
