"Carqueville's large body of posters for Philadelphia based Lippincott's magazine was completed before he left his native Chicago to study in Paris. On his return, he set up a studio in Chicago, where he had a long productive career as a lithographer, designer and painter…Writing in London, Charles Hiatt praised Carqueville's 'skill in making vehement colour contrast' Case in point: This sporty chap enjoying a pipe decked out in his fashionable tennis whites. His golden beard and hair immediately catch one's eye, while the textured-burgundy background and periwinkle blossoms maintain an eclectic interest. An exemplary design, executed with primary elan" (Rennert, PAI-XXVIII, 194,196)
