Daniel C. Sweeney
DISPLAYING: 11" x 14" Giclée Art Print
Dan Sweeney was born in 1880 in Sacramento, California. Details of his early years are unknown but he must have started at illustration around the turn of the century. By 1914 he was already sufficiently known to be hired to illustrate a book but most of his work as a book illustrator seems to have been done in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Most of Dan Sweeney's illustrations were done for newspapers and magazines as the San Francisco Chronicle, Collier's, Overboard Monthly, World Traveler and others. He also did theater and travel posters and other illustrations. He was considered a specialist in western and marine subjects.
