About

This piece was completed and published on the cover of "Woman's Day" magazine January 1952. A little boy eats a chocholate bar in the back seat of a car from the times. A glimpse of perhaps what the mother views when checking up in the back seat along the ride home. A bag of groceries are undone on his lap as he eats the chocolate. A mid centruy advetisment executed by Richard Sargent, one of America's most beloved illustrators from the times. Signed "Dick Sargent" on verso with the address "1111 California Road Tuckahoe 7 N.Y" Comes displayed in original matting. Please note matting has colored over the year and is not in perfect condition, however the actual painting is in very good condition. Richard “Dick” Sargent, one of The Saturday Evening Post’s most prolific illustrators, was a Midwesterner born in Moline, Illinois, on March 26, 1911. His early career in art began just after his graduation from Moline High School, when he went to work for a local printing and engraving plant. While there, Sargent attended night classes at the Moline Illinois Art School, the foundation for his future career as an artist. In 1951, Sargent completed his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post, “Truth About Santa,” for the December 15 Christmas issue. While Sargent’s popularity grew through the exposure he received with the Post, he also did illustration work for magazines such as Fortune, Woman’s Day, Photoplay, and American Magazine. Americans adored Sargent and his art for his ability to show relatable, pregnant scenes with open-ended conclusions that commented on the situational comedy of life.
