Henry Clive
Global Glamour - Normandy

1944

$9,500

About

A fine surviving cover illustration painting by Henry Clive for the August 27, 1944 edition of "The American Weekly", a Randolph Hearst publication. Clive enjoyed a three decade long association with this title, he often created serialized successive monthly covers of female heroines throughout history. In this World War II era example--published a scant ten weeks after the Normandy invasion--Clive envisions a French woman villager from Normandy posed as gens ordinaires. She is shown in a stoic unadorned pose as part of the "Typical Beauties On All Of Our Fronts" series, which was a patriotic morale boosting effort meant to instill a sense of connection to the many varied nations fighting against the Axis powers in WWII. Painting is nicely framed under glass in a fine gold gallery frame and a published cover of the American Weekly is included in the sale. This illustration comes from the collection of esteemed illustration art collector Norman Platnick. Framed dimensions: 21.5" x 26.5" Image dimensions: 15.25" x 20"
