A beautiful winter landscape by Clymer, most likely an early version of the illustration for the story "Home for Christmas" by Dorothy Canfield, published in This Week magazine, December 24, 1939. The composition is very similar to fellow American illustrator Dale Nichols's winter landscape "Bringing Home the Tree," and related images featuring the Nebraska farmstead where he was raised. Clymer, himself, was was a great lover of nature, especially the Canadian, Alaskan, and American wilderness, which he incorporated into the many story illustrations and covers he created throughout his career.
In the 1930s, he studied with N.C. Wyeth at the Old Howard Pyle School in Wilmington, Delaware, at the Royal Canadian Academy of Art, Ontario, and with Harvey Dunn in Connecticut. After decades of commercial illustration, he dedicated himself to fine art painting and returned to his love of the natural world, chronicling the Northwestern Indians and their territory, winning several awards in the field of Western art.
