(dates ?) - The Master of the Philadelphia Skyline.
The Philadelphia Electric Company advertised widely in mass circulation magazines during the 'fifties and 'sixties, and more often than not, used the paintings of C.G.Evers to identify the City of Philadelphia and its surrounding hinterland. I know nothing of the man who does not seem to appear in the usual anthologies of American Illustration.
It interests me not a jot that he does nor reflect urban blight.Like other designers of character he creates an individual world that is plausible wherever probed. His employers kept his work going and they must have been pleased. I hope you enjoy his immense gifts.
