N.P.: n.p., 1943. Limited Editions Club. painting (21 1/2 by 18 1/2 inches). Painting by artist Boardman Robinson, "The Sermon." Born in Nova Scotia, Robinson spent his early years in Canada and England, moving to Boston by the early 1890s. He studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and later studied at the Académie Colarossi and the École des Beaux-Arts, both in Paris. He worked as an illustrator for a number of publications. He travelled to Europe in 1915 and 1916, and saw the effects of World War I on the people of Europe. After returning from Europe, he began to work for The Masses, a socialist monthly. After the United States entered the war, the government deemed that The Masses had violated the Espionage Act of 1917, and it ceased publication. After the war, Robinson became a teacher and a book illustrator. A reproduction of this painting appeares in Moby Dick, published by the Limited Editions Club in 1942 (Will Ranson, Selective Check Lists of Press Books: a Compilation of All Important and Significant Private Presses or Press Books which are Collected (New York: Philip C.
