About

A bright, crisp, early art deco era oil on canvas advertising painting, featuring a stylish flapper mother in cloche hat and her children marveling at the iconic Cream of Wheat chef, who is winking at modernism by pointing to the picture within the picture. A very rare surviving work which is attributed to Enoch Bolles, who worked for many years creating similar streetcar advertisements for Vicks Vaporub, Squibb's Dental Cream, and Uneeda Biscuits. In order to brand the iconic campaign, the face was usually integrated as a photo element within the advertising artwork so as to create a uniform envisioning of the character. This photo element would be applied to the canvas and painted over and colored as needed by the artist, as it has been in this case. Sight Size 28" x 16" Framed 30 1/2" x 19"
