DescriptionCharles Gates Sheldon (1889-1960) Original Advertising Illustration (1910-1915).
A rare advertising image by Charles Sheldon from the early 1900s, promoting safety in the home -- Pyrene was a brand of fire extinguisher.
Charcoal on (thin) board, approximately 17 x 20. Signed lower left.
A photo of the models from Sheldon's personal photo reference library is included.
There are several breaks in the fragile board but, with the exception of one on the woman's left shoulder, they are confined to the outer edges. Careful tape repairs have been made on each break on the verso and the overall appearance is unaffected.
