A charming and well rendered 1954 oil on canvas painting created for an Ohleen Dairy Calendar by the Louis F. Dow Company. The artist is Vaughan Alden Bass, who specialized in pin-up art for this Saint Paul, Minnesota gone but not forgotten Calendar giant. Of particular note in this lovely painting is the adorable bakelite crib toy in the lower right corner. Verso canvas is dated 1954, and stretcher is marked with Ohleen Dairy, 1954 Line and Current in pen. Work is in excellent untouched condition.
