Underhill's commercial work never appears in the histories of American Illustration. There is the danger his recent thoughtful painting that has been gathered together by the Dadian Gallery might obscure what I always admired and collected. Of the range of illustrative works I have traced, his work for Stetson was the most impressive. He may have got bored with gents in hats, but I never have. I offer four examples of his work - tied in with the release of feature films.
