Edward Windsor Kemble (1861-1933) is best-known for his superb illustrations of Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Puddin’ Head Wilson, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin and several of Joel Chandler Harris’ Uncle Remus stories. He was a self-taught artist, whose work “reveals a strong sense of humor and an acute observation of character…” He had a special empathy for Black characters and drew them with an understanding and geniality uncommon in his day” (Reed, p. 20).
