The late Robert Childress was a commercial artist in the 1940s who is fondly remembered as the illustrator of the Dick, Jane and Sally reading books in the early 1960s. Childress was a friend of artist Norman Rockwell, and they both painted in the realism style, with similar shades of humor.

 

Childress is known for commercial art he did for companies like Coca Cola, Campbell's Soup and Buster Brown Shoes. His artwork has appeared on the covers of magazines such as Yankee, Country Gentleman and Readers Digest. He also painted portraits of notables such as U.S. Supreme Court Justice James Byrnes.
