    Edward M. Eggleston (1883-1941) Original Calendar/Advertising Painting (c.1915). Edward M. Eggleston, one of the most accomplished calendar artists of his day, was best known for his images of Indian maidens, exotic glamour subjects, and patriotic themes. His calendar art was published by the Brown & Bigelow, Thomas D. Murphy, and Joseph C. Hoover and Sons calendar companies. His exquisite and timely creations, which were generally rendered primarily in pastels or oils, are still cherished and sought after by collectors today. Original paintings by Eggleston are exceedingly uncommon, and this painting is the earliest known example of the artist's work. This image was most likely published as an advertising image (note the fine photo-like detail of the fishing rod) and possibly a calendar print. It is rendered in gouache on board and is the only painting by the artist in this medium known to exist. The art is framed (33 x 24) with a sight size of approximately 25.5 x 16.5, signed and dated (1914) lower left.
