    Description

    Howard Connolly - Original Illustration (1936-1940). Howard Connolly was known for his glamour art images, which were published as interior illustration and covers in Collier's and other national publications. He was also commissioned, in 1946, to paint the reigning Miss America's portrait. One of Connolly's greatest artistic influences was the work of Rolf Armstrong. This painting is a reproduction rendered by Howard Connolly of a 1936 Rolf Armstrong College Humor magazine cover. Connolly so admired the cover that he made this copy for himself and it remained in his personal collection until the current owner obtained it. It is executed in pastel on board, and is framed (31x 25) with an approximate sight size of 21 x 16. The title lettering is painted by the artist on a mylar overlay.
