Barbelle was an American artist known for his cover art for the sheet music of Tin Pan Alley. Barbelle’s career spanned over forty years, his works were very versatile as it included various subjects and styles. While Barbelle’s works included enhancing photographic subjects, fantasy creations, and silhouettes, his main subjects were women. He was very conscious of style, fashion, and color; he kept his works contemporary as possible, and he used more subtle color than others in the field. Although he used subtle colors, he used the colors to highlight an element in a picture. Today, many libraries hold sheet music with his designs.
