Arthur Gross, born 1910 in Brooklyn, was known as a realistic illustrator, and the MoToR illustration shows a definite sense of humor. He was the son of Dave Gross, a Jewish immigrant from Hungary who went to Pratt Institute and became successful in the fashion industry with his midtown studio Fashion Paper. His three children, eldest son George, middle son Arthur and daughter Beatrice joined him at his Nangro Ferrod Studio at 15 W. 38th Street in Manhattan to work on commercial illustrations. Arthur's older brother George was best known for his work in pulp fiction and men's adventure magazines.
