Haskell Coffin

Return to Previous Page
Haskell Coffin designed many portrait covers for Ladies' magazines, mainly recreating the image of his beautiful wife. For the war effort, he only created 4 or 5 propanda/ morale posters, but they are so loved by collectors, that his name is well-known.

He apparently committed suicide by leaping from his third-floor hospital room on May 12th, 1941 (the anniversary of his divorce.) at the age of 63.  It was an ugly ending for someone who brought so much beauty into the world.
