Grapefruit Moon Gallery is delighted to offer The World’s Fare, a rare surviving archived Cream of Wheat original oil painting. This 1923 artwork was reproduced as a full page advertisement in hundreds of American magazines. Featuring the iconic chef “Rastus” feeding a host of ethnically diverse, exotically dressed and cleverly posed children. Along with other selections from the archive, The World’s Fare was loaned out in the late 1980s for a touring gallery exhibition. None of the original paintings commissioned for Cream of Wheat advertising have ever previously been available for sale and we are delighted to offer them.
