Richard Sargent (1911-1979) was born in Moline, IL on March 26, 1911. Sargent studied at the Corcoran School of Art. His work appeared in Saturday Evening Post and other magazines. Richard Sargent painted 47 Post covers between 1951 and 1962, when photographs were rapidly replacing magazine illustrations. A Midwesterner, he was born and raised in Moline, Illinois and went to art school there. He later became quite the world traveler, but he always remembered the all-American folk and loved putting them in situations that tended to go awry. In the late 1960s he retired to the Andalusia region of Spain and died there in 1978.
