Noted for his pen and ink illustrations, Thomas Fogarty also taught at the Art Students League in New York. Fogarty was extremely influential with his pupils--certainly that was true for Norman Rockwell. He assisted Rockwell in obtaining his first publishing assignment while still a student. Rockwell described Fogarty�'s teaching style as thus: �"Mr. Fogarty condemned all flights of fantasy, insisting that our illustrations be faithful to the story in every detail. �An illustration,� he used to say, �is an illustration. Quite simply that. Nothing less, nothing more. An author'�s words in paint, gentleman and ladies, an author�s words in paint.��"
