Atherton, John

Price: $ 9,500.00

Description: Tools of the artist's trade.

Comment: In addition to its use for The Art Directors Club, the piece was included in the exhibition “Artist in Advertising” held by The Museum of Modern Art in about 1943. Atherton, whose career was cut short by his accidental death in 1952, was comfortable in a variety of styles and approaches. For this aspect of his talent, it just does not get any better than this... as is witnessed in the artwork's inclusion in the M.O.M.A. Show--- far from the bastion of American illustration.
