    Description

    Edwin Henry - Original Magazine Story Illustration (1940). Edwin Henry was a partner with Haddon Sundblom in the their famous Chicago advertising studio. Most of Henry's illustration work was produced for commercial advertising. Along with Sundblom he created images for some of the major national companies including Proctor and Gamble, Quaker Oats and Camel cigarettes. This skillfully rendered story illustration by Henry was published in Liberty magazine, July 20, 1940. A bittersweet romantic image, it accompanied the story, They Sing and Go Away, by Helen Hedrick, with the following caption: "'What kind of girl I got me?' he said. 'I thought you said you knew what was what.'" A beautiful and impressive painting rendered in oil on canvas, it measures 39 x 28, and is signed middle left. An issue of the Liberty magazine is included.
