    John F. Gould - Original Advertising Painting (1940-1950). John Gould's extensive early work in the pulps prepared him for later assignments for such national magazines as The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, and The Country Gentleman. In addition to story illustration, he also contributed his talents to creating advertising images for several major companies, including this fine example painted for General Electric. This fabulous train ad has great detail: note the GE logo subtly placed just below the engine number. Painted in oil on board, framed (18 x 23.5) with a sight size of approximately 11.5 x 16.5, the art is signed lower left.
