Biography   Frank Macoy ("Mac") Harshberger, Jr.

Mac Harshberger was a highly successful illustrator who is best known for his elegant, simplified forms in which positive and negative shapes are equally important and economy of line is the rule.  

The drawings done in this mode were mostly executed in the 1920’s and 30’s after he had studied with Maurice Denis in Paris. Denis was associated with Les Nabis and helped to develop a rationale for visual abstraction. He was the first artist to write about the need to respect the flatness of the picture plane in developing design.

His influence was important to Mac Harshberger’s development as an artist and, ultimately, Harshberger’s success in popularizing the sophisticated Art Deco style  in the United States.
