Commentary: A noted illustrator and contemporary of Schoonover’s, went to settle some accounts
[circa 1930] at the offices of The Youth’s Companion magazine which was discontinuing publication. The managing editor explained that there were unclaimed originals for The Youth’s Companion illustrations in a back room and if he wanted any, to ‘help himself’. The artist looked at the piles of canvases and chose this one. He gave it to his son [current owner] as a gift.
Provenance: Sold by artist to The Youth’s Companion; private collection; Guyette and Deeter, Inc., Lot 84(February 18, 2017)
