For example, one noted Bucklin artist is  William Savery Bucklin,  a painter in the 1800's. He achieved great commercial success, and was widely known. His work included watercolors, oil paintings, murals in public buildings, and covers for magazines. On the left is a sample from our catalog of the art of William Savery Bucklin. W.S.B was best known for his cheerful forest scenes. Persons interested in social history will find him interesting because of his nurture by the Bucklin group at the North American Phalanx.
