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 these covers, and also his World War II propaganda posters and commercial illustrative art.
The image is a wonderful American city street scene of New year's Eve happenings in different apartments in row houses. One can see in the windows to parties, Christmas trees, an old man alone, a man holding a new baby, kissing couples, dancing couples, a man with a trombone playing out the window and etc. The old brick building looks like any American city in the 1940's. This image is entitled "Apartment Dwellers on New Year's Eve."
An inset square reveals the content of the magazine, "A Complete Novelette" and "The Russian Bear Hugs Greece" by Demaree Bess.
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 rich and deep art.
