Know who this is? When? Where? What? Why it matters? 
There has never been a proper textbook on the history of illustration. It’s important, not just for training students but for representing the field and its legacy to the world.
In order to help get a textbook going, I have written a SURVEY to help determine the content, scope, format, and tone of a potential textbook. Whitney Sherman, an instructor at the Maryland Institute College of Art, co-authored the SURVEY, and it was checked over by a range of qualified people. We don’t have plans to write one ourselves - we just see the need for information for whoever does. The  New York Society of Illustrators is sponsoring this SURVEY.
Now it’s YOUR turn - have your say, as a teacher, student, collector, or scholar:
SURVEY
Oh, and it’s Arthur William Brown, circa 1945, New York, unidentified model, and it’s important because Brown was one of the biggest promoters of illustration in his day and a big influence on the evolution of sexualized beauty standards, for better and worse.
