Tom Lovell created this colorful and expertly rendered painting to illustrate “Son of The Coach” an interior story for the October 14, 1950 issue of Collier’s Magazine. A copy of the magazine is included in the sale. The scene captures a brunette co-ed turning away in sadness from the ongoing marching band celebration in the background, as the son of the coach worriedly contemplates a confrontation. Illustration appeared on pages 20 and 21 accompanying a college campus love triangle story written by William R. Scott with a caption that reads … “Then I saw Judy and I knew I had the toughest assignment of all. I had to swallow what was left of my pride – do some humble apologizing.” This painting is also featured as a full-page colorplate in the newly released monograph on the artist, Tom Lovell Illustrator by Daniel Zimmer (Illustrated Press). Handsomely silk matted and framed under glass, just an outstanding example of the artist’s narrative illustration.
