Thomas Nast

University of North Carolina Press

Between 1877 and 1884, Thomas Nast's fame and talent began to decline. Nast's final years with Harper's saw two presidential contests, a series of lesser crusades, and episodic conflict over Nast's freedom to draw the cartoons he wanted to. When he became ill, the Harpers family persuaded him to return to the paper, and on December 27, 1883 he did so. Nast's artistic impulses were rejuvenated in his last great battle against Republican presidential candidate James G. Blaine, which also pushed Harper's Weekly back into its position as the nation's premier Republican magazine.
