Dating to the 1950s, this Mid-Century Modern original advertising illustration features a young, stylish, and well-to-do couple looking at travel posters and pondering their next destination. The African masks and tribal Zuni Fetish Doll on the mantle as well as the hanging modernist abstract art let the consumer know that this couple is sophisticated and well-traveled. A commissioned work for the Cunningham & Walsh Advertising Company, circa 1950s. Watercolor and gouache on board, unsigned but guaranteed to be the work of the illustrator Richard Preyer, from his estate sold through Swann Galleries in NYC. Painting is in a fine state of original conservation and has been nicely matted and framed under glass.
