Three young ladies in hats - pastel drawings by Guy Hoff, circa 1925.


Guy Hoff (1889 - 1962), American artist and illustrator. Born in Rochester, New York, he was trained at the Art School of the Albright Gallery in Buffalo, and the Art Students League in New York City. His first commercial illustrations were done for the Niagara Lithograph Company in Buffalo. In New York, he designed program covers for the Shubert Theatres and then sold his first magazine cover to Smart Set, which introduced him to the national market. Over the years, in addition to work for Smart Set, Pictorial Review, The Saturday Evening Post and other magazines, he also did advertising illustrations for Procter & Gamble, Lux, and Ivory Soap. His last commercial work was done in 1938, after which he concentrated on pastels and paintings for exhibition purposes.
