Bernhardt Wall is an illustrator and lithographer who lived from 1872 to 1956. He was born in Buffalo, New York and also lived in Texas and California. He did many illustrations and etchings of cowboys, Indians and western scenes. He was known as the “Postcard King” as many of his works were done on little cards. The lithography below was done by Wall in 1905 and features a collegiate scene.
There is a poker game in progress with a collegiate student wearing a Harvard sweater and behind the table are Harvard and Yale pennants.
The lithograph sold at auction recently for $150.
