    Description

    William Fulton Soare (1896-1940) Original Magazine Story Illustration (c.1930). A member of the Brandywine School, two of William Soare's teachers were Harvey Dunn and N. C. Wyeth. Soare painted pin-up and glamour subjects for calendars; western, detective and adventure paintings for the pulps; and advertising images for such companies as Coca-Cola. He also did numerous story illustrations that were published in some of the notable national magazines including The Saturday Evening Post, Scribner's, and The Country Gentleman. This image of a handsome formal couple was a story illustration that most likely appeared in The Saturday Evening Post. It is rendered in oil on canvas, measures 37 x 17 and is signed lower right. The painting is nicely framed for an overall size of 42 x 21.5.
