    Description

    Edgar Church Martin Coal Co. Decorative Advertisement Preliminary Original Art (Church Studio, 1932). A gem from the dean of Western/Southwestern advertising artists. Clients came from near and far to commission Church's Denver-based studio to deliver irresistible product designs like this conceptual sketch for Martin Coal Co. (Church also is the guy responsible for the famous Mile High Collection of comic books.) Created in ink and colored wax pencils on tracing paper with an image area 8" round that is affixed to the Bristol board with the graphite and ink art. Light wrinkling, endemic to the page-stock, slight toning, handling and edge wear, and minor smudging. In Very Good condition.
