Biography

Arthur Shilstone (Redding, CT) - Army, 23rd HQ Special Troops, Europe. After the War, Shilstone spent 30 years illustrating the nation's top magazines (Saturday Evening Post, Life, Smithsonian among others). Several original illustrations for Smithsonian were about aspects of the war, including the fascinating top-secret work of the "Deception Corps." Today, he concentrates on fine art, principally hunting and fly-fishing scenes captured in gorgeous watercolors. His original fountain pen sketches mailed home from the front provide an exceptional and highly personal view of history – like the one made just before he climbed down the lines into the boat taking him into Normandy.
