THIS AUCTION IS FOR:

: ORIGINAL FRANK C BENSING (1893-1983) FOOTBALL TEAM GAME CELEBRATION ILLUSTRATION PAINTING

THIS IS JUST A GREAT ILLUSTRATION.  I HANDLE A COUPLE OF REALLY GOOD ONES EVERY YEAR AND THIS IS REALLY ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE HANDLED OVER THE YEARS.  FOR THOSE NOT FAMILIAR WITH BENSING HIS BIOGRAPHY READS:

Long associated with General Electric, both appliances and lighting, but also did ad work for Karo Syrup, Coke, Hinds, Monarch Foods, Post Toasties. Slick work, covers and story art, for Country Gentlemen, American Legion, Pictorial Review, McCall's, Saturday Evening Post, Coronet, Redbook. He also contributed photography for the Post and American Legion. Movie posters for RKO. Bensing handled inks, oils, and watercolors expertly and was especially good at creating interesting lines of action in what would otherwise be static scenes.

AN IMPORTANT ARTIST, THIS IS A WONDERFUL ORIGINAL.  GOUACHE ON ILLUSTRATION BOARD THIS WAS PROBABLY AN ILLUSTRATION FOR AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR GE OR PERHAPS SOMETHING FOR THE SATURDAY EVENING POST.  A CLASSIC "AMERICANA" IMAGE OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM BEING LEAD OFF THE FIELD AFTER VICTORY BY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.  THE STAR BEING CARRIED BY HIS COACH AND DAD AND HIS GIRL PLANTING A KISS ON HIS CHEEK.  THE PERFECT ALL AMERICAN IMAGE THAT WAS USED FOR SELLING PRODUCTS IN THE 1940s WHEN THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE.  SIGNED IN PENCIL LOWER RIGHT THE IMAGE MEASURES 13 X 21 INCHES AND IS IN NEARLY PERFECT AS PAINTED CONDITION.  REALLY QUITE STUNNING.  TRULY A VERY FINE ORIGINAL AMERICAN ILLUSTRATION.  DOUBLE ARCHIVAL MATTED IN A WONDERFUL COMPLIMENTARY COLOR AND A GOLD FRAME MAKES THIS ILLUSTRATION READY TO HANG.  JUST A GREAT PRESENTATION.  DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THIS WORK.  HIS ILLUSTRATIONS VIRTUALLY NEVER SELL FOR UNDER $1000 AND MANY SELL FOR MUCH MORE.  THIS ONE WOULD BE CONSIDERED ONE OF HIS BETTER SUBJECTS AND A DESIRABLE ONE AT THAT.  FRAME MEASURES 25 X 32 1/2 INCHES.     

CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE.  DONT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY. 

  SHIPPING AND HANDLING AND INSURANCE CAN BE CALCULATED.  ALL ITEMS ARE BEING SOLD AS IS.  PICTURES ARE AN EXCELLENT INDICATION OF CONDITION.  CHECK MY FEEDBACK AND YOU WILL SEE THAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE HAPPY.  I GENERALLY SHIP ONCE A WEEK SO PLEASE BE PATIENT.  IT TAKES TIME TO MAKE SURE ALL OF THIS ART AND ANTIQUES ARRIVE SAFELY.  PLEASE DONT HESITATE TO EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS.  THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAPPY BIDDING.
