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 John Falter to JC Leyendecker to NC Wyeth and many more.
This poster is by well known artist Stevan Dohanos, (1907-1994) of Lorain, Ohio. He was best known for these covers, and also his World War II propaganda posters.
The image is a logger in red flannel plaid shirt, balancing on a log in river, and inspecting a heart and initials carved into a log recently cut. It is a beautiful American image. The colors are rich, lush and the art realism at its finest. This cover is named "Whose Initials" by the Saturday Evening Post.
An inset square reveals the content of the magazine, "A Complete Novelette" by Noel Langley and "San Francisco" by George Sessions Perry.
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.
SIZE: 21 x 28 inches
