    Description

    Paul Strayer (1885-1981) Original Advertising Illustration (1930-1940). An exceedingly rare Zephyer Train advertisement painted by the accomplished illustrator, Paul Strayer. Well known for his accurate and painterly depictions of the rugged outdoors, Strayer was also a prolific book illustrator, and created memorable illustrations for such classics as Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped and Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. Rendered in oil on canvas, it measures 25 x 18 and is signed lower left. There is an ink inscription on the painting (on top of the train car in the forefront) that reads: "To my good friend Joe McDowell, from Charles F. Minor," and it is dated 10-4-1949.
