    Description

    Robert Robinson - Original Magazine Cover Art (1946). A Brandywine artist and student of Howard Pyle, Robinson produced many memorable early covers for The Saturday Evening Post. His cover art evoked a narrative style that one can easily compare to his contemporary, J. C. Leyendecker, and to a later Post contributor, Norman Rockwell. This is especially apparent in several of Robinson's whimsical Post covers (beginning around 1910) depicting his now famous rural old man. In later years, Robinson painted numerous covers for Motor Magazine, including this painting, a fine example, appearing April, 1946. Titled, "1896 Garage," a young boy shares his imaginative idea for a flying car with the local blacksmith. Rendered in Robinson's masterful style, it is executed in oil on canvas, measures approximately 28 x 17.5, and is signed lower-middle right.
