    Description

    HADDON SUNDBLOM (American 1899 - 1976)
    Original pin up illustration for the Shaw-Barton Calendar Company, Coshocton, Ohio, circa 1950s
    Oil on canvas
    36 x 32in.
    Signed lower left

    While Haddon Sundblom is often celebrated for his work on the Coca-Cola advertising account, this piece is sure to be an especially coveted piece because it is one of only a handful of straight pin up scenes that Sundblom painted. This lovely canvas has never been offered at auction or been publicly available until now. The piece was acquired from a gentleman who had bought the Shaw-Barton Calendar archives several years ago. This work had been stored in the company's vault for decades.
