Blossom, David

Price: $1,800.00

Description: Ford Thunderbird on French street

Provenance: From the artist's estate.

Comment: Blossom was one of the many popular illustrators who called southern Connecticut home in the 1950's through the 1970's. It was truly a hotbed of great innovative Illustration. Blossom did a lot of good, solid work for both a number of prominent advertisers as well as both magazines and paperback book publishers. This one's a bit of a conundrum… looks like it could have been for a brochure advertising the car; a travel magazine or even an illustration for a straightforward fictional work in any of hundreds of magazines. Notes in the margins/ on back indicate that it was to be reproduced at 38.5% which would have made it on the small side for a magazine. It's also marked as “F-5275 p. 62” Has a variety of dates on back from 11/10 – 11/13 of some year or other. Most frustrating of all is the fact that there's a rubber stamp of which the last two digits of the year are chopped off. Grrr. I'm sure that someone out there can put the pieces together on this.

Price: $1,800 (+ $70 domestic shipping)


Artist David Blossom (1927 - 1995)
Condition Very good, neither matted not framed.
Medium Gouache on board
Publication Information Seems to be for a story entitled “Vive la France”, and quite likely for a December issue of some magazine or other… the notation that lead me to thaat also includes the initials G.J.M. That could have been an art director, or perhaps even the name of the magazine… though that seemed to lead me nowhere.
Signature Signed lower right
Size 18.75 x 16.25”
