We purchased 5 wonderful old original Esquire Magazine Cartoon posters years ago and they have been in our personal collection. They are large, bright and beautiful. We have never seen them offered anywhere before, and really know nothing of their past history. They are by different well known forties graphic illustrators, all unsigned.

This poster may be by well known African American illustrator E. Simms Campbell, graphic designer, poster artist, and cartoon artist, as it resembles his Esquire and "Cuties" work greatly. Do you know?

This classic American art deco poster shows a young woman is in a dressing room such as on broadway, vaudeville, theater or movie. There are roses on table and lights around her mirror for makeup, is she a starlet? She is opening a jewelry box, with a distinguished dapper older gentleman with a top hat, looking on. He presumably has money. He has just gifted her the bracelet in box. An elder, rather frumpy woman (her secretary, mother?) is saying, "Now, darling...what do you say to the nice man?" The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing.
