"William P. Welsh was an outstanding decorative painter and illustrator, primarily of the 1930s, who seemingly has not been given his due. He was very prolific, yet it's hard to find many examples of his work, let alone a collected works book or such.
Welsh did fiction illustration for numerous publications. He painted many magazine covers and posters. He also did several murals, many portraits, exhibited internationally and taught at the Art Institute of Chicago. "
