The Saturday Evening Post is a American magazine, started in 1897 and still in existence. It was monumental in its use of American illustrators on the famous covers, and exposing these designers and art to the American public, from Norman Rockwell, to Stevan Dohanos, to JC Leyendecker to NC Wyeth and many more.
This poster is by well known artist John Falter (1910-1982) of Plattsmouth, Nebraska. He was best known for his these covers, and also his World War II propaganda posters and commercial illustrative art.
The image is a beautiful American scene of 5 young 1940's era boys and their dog walking along the Missouri river. A younger brother, about 6 years old in overalls trails behind with walking stick. A lazy, hazy summer day in America. The landscape is a stunning scene of an expansive America, with steam engine train smoke coming from tracks below. This image is called "Steam Engine Along the Missouri" by the Saturday Evening Post.
An inset square reveals the content of the magazine, "Phantom Fortresses vs. the Atom Bomb" by Brigadier General Roger M. Ramey and "The Creator of Alexander Botts Tells How He Got That Way."
We only have this one, although we are excited to present other Saturday Evening Post Posters as well. Freshly linen backed, beautiful and ready for framing. Amazing art.
