Additional Details

Stone (1925 - ) "studied both at the New York Art Students League and at Yale University, where he earned a B.F.A. His paintings are assured and subtle, carefully simplified, always in good taste. He successfully combines the traditional accomplishments of good drawing and academic painting that holds its own with contemporary techniques" -- Walter Reed "The Illustrator in America" (New York: The Society of Illustrator, 2001).
