Burton Silverman

Classical Composers and Conductors: Arthur Fiedler (1997)

The art of New York City native Burton Silverman grows out of his responses to the world around him. His illustration career began with a commission to create a series of instructional drawings for Sports Illustrated in 1961. Since then, his masterful images have appeared in children’s books, advertisements, and magazines for such prominent clients as Time, Life, The New Yorker, Exxon, CBS, Heinz, and IBM. As a distinguished easel painter, he has received many professional honors, and his work has been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the world. The portraits he paints focus on the interior worlds of their subjects and are featured on 12 U.S. stamps.
