Leyendecker Santa Claus
I've suggested before that although others preceded him in developing the character of The Jolly One, I think the great American illustrator J.C. Leyendecker is most responsible for the contemporary version of Santa Claus we are familiar with today.

For more, see my previous Christmas Eve posts on Leyendecker's Santas and Illustrators' Visions of Santa Claus.
