About Frank McCarthy
Beautiful landscapes full of verdant rolling hills and majestic creatures populate the works of American landscape painters. One such master was Frank McCarthy, who produced innumerable works of art during his day. Most of his works fit within the realist genre. McCarthy created advertisements, magazine artwork, paperback covers, film posters and Western paintings. He is perhaps known more for creating the film posters for classics like "The Great Escape," "The Train," and "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." However, his true passion was Western painting. You can find the full range of McCarthy's work from sellers on eBay. It is easy to see why the illustrator's paintings earned him an induction into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. Beautiful elements of composition unite to create a sense of nostalgia in many of his pieces. Books compiling his most beloved works, prints, and originals all appeal to art aficionados and lovers of the American West. Frank McCarthy has successfully captured a sense of natural American beauty in his paintings, all of which have captivated those who truly enjoy the American narrative.
