    Description

    Robert Fawcett (1903-1967) Original Magazine Story Illustration (1952). Robert Fawcett was highly regarded among his peers for his steadfast approach to his craft. His work throughout his career always reflected the highest quality of expertise and diligence in composition, design, and research of his subjects. Fawcett felt that to do less would be unfair to the viewer. His work in advertising and magazine illustration appeared in numerous publications, including Collier's, Redbook, and Look magazines. This illustration was published in Redbook, February, 1952, to accompany the story titled, Incalculable Risk. It is rendered in gouache on board, framed (24 x 31) with a sight size of approximately 17 x 24.5, and is signed (initialed) lower right.
