    Description

    Alexander Sharpe Ross (as Alex Ross) Magazine Story Illustration Original Art (c. 1960s) Passionate and exquisitely rendered in soothing shades of earthen tones, this large-scale portrait of a family's faith may have graced a magazine article of undocumented pedigree. This Alex Ross is not the DC Comics artist of times more recent, but rather the celebrated commercial illustrator of the 1940s-60s -- often seen in such slick titles as Good Housekeeping. Created in gouache on board with an image area of 16" x 12". The art was previously matted, but is detached with remaining remnants around the border with some that bleed into the side image areas. The board is lightly toned, has pinholes, and some edge and handling wear. Signed by Ross in lower right, and art remains in Very Good condition.
