Louis John Rhead 🇺🇸 (1857 - 1926) was an English-born American artist, illustrator, author and angler.
In the early 1890s, Rhead became a leading poster artist and was strongly influenced by the work of Swiss artist Eugène Grasset.
During the poster craze of the early 1890s, Rhead's posters appeared regularly in Harper's Bazaar, Harper's Magazine, St. Nicolas, Century Magazine, Ladies Home Journal and Scribner's Magazine.
An exhibition of his work was organized by the Salon des Cent in Paris.
Three of his posters have been published in Les Maîtres de l'Affiche.
