Henry Clive
California Spanish Girl

1942

$13,500

About

This rare, original mixed medium painting by Henry Clive graced the cover of the February 15, 1942 edition of William Randolph Hearst's The American Weekly. Clive often played with serialized themes in his work for the magazine, and this Spanish Mission-inspired image was from a series entitled "Maid In America." The image on the magazine cover appeared with the title; No.5 - California Spanish Girl, with accompanying verses by Phyllis McGinley. Although Henry Clive enjoyed a three-decade career as a cover artist for The American Weekly, his original paintings are very scarce today, particularly ones as lovely and well-rendered as this. Nicely matted and framed under glass with a tear sheet copy of the published American Weekly cover included in the sale. Framed dimensions: 31.5" x 34.5" Image dimensions: 22" x 25"
