"Under the Tree," Striking Mid-Century Scene by Heitland for Liberty Magazine



A striking and bold example of illustration art, this scene of a young man in a bathing suit conversing with an elegant woman in her car coat, was drawn by Wilmot Heitland for Liberty magazine. Like a scene out of "Far From Heaven," the conversation hinted at here suggests a clash of cultures or classes. Heitland is best known for painting High Society scenes for countless magazines in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, but he also loved to capture the local natives when he travelled to tropical locales such as Hawaii and the Dominican Republic. (Dimensions include full margin of board.).
