It was created by the Skidmore Studio in Detroit. These kinds of fine art automotive advertising illustrations are becoming more and more rare/desirable because photography and new digital processes have all but replaced traditional media in the category. This original illustration would look great framed in a man cave or office, and make an interesting conversation or nostalgia piece for any advertising collector or automotive enthusiast. The hand-painted (Gouache, pronounced "gwash") image is airbrushed on a 23" x 20" illustration board that has been "peeled" for high-resolution drum scanning as was the practice at the time for print reproduction.
The intended crop or mat opening is approximately 16" x 22" (see sample cropped image, matting not included), but this can be increased or decreased slightly because of the overscan area. Overall the piece is in good shape. The paper shows a bit of age and might do well to be mounted to a new backing board.
There is a small tear in the upper left corner that would not show if the image is matted. There are also two places where the image was taped that have yellowed; only one may show when matted. It may also be possible to remove them with right solvent. The item "Vintage Advertising Original Illustration ArtBuick Park Avenue Ultra Automotive" is in sale since Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
