A luminous and rare Golden Age of Illustration cover oil painting for the Saturday Evening Post, entitled “Graduate On Top Of the World”, by Edmund Davenport. This appeared as the cover the June 13, 1925 issue and is a fresh to the market work that finds the artist (who contributed three Post covers in 1925) painting in a Norman Rockwell like illustrative style. The unusual subject, that of a confident, young pretty, independent flapper on graduation day, and the scarcity of surviving Post covers from this era add to the already enormous appeal of this lovely and historic American illustration painting.
