This large original BRADSHAW CRANDELL illustration is charcoal on board and measures a large 23 x 29. It is signed in the lower right corner and framed (black wooden frame with glass). This piece is in EXCELLENT CONDITION - the photos don't do it justice because it was not taken out of the frame for these shots. The gorgeous female figure has more than a bit of a Jean Harlow look as she gazes down at the seated male figure before her. The look and style is textbook 1930s art deco.Please note: WILL BE MAILED FLAT, BUT NOT FRAMED. He was known as the "artist of the stars". Among those who posed for Crandell were Carol Lombard, Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Veronica Lake and Lana Turner. His first cover illustration was the May 28, 1921 issue for the humor magazine Judge. In later life he went from illustrations to oil-on-canvas paintings which included political figures. He also provided poster work for 20th Century Fox. In 2006 he was inducted into the Society of Illustrators hall of fame. This classic illustration is your chance to snag a great example from the golden age of art deco.
