VERY RARE RECREATION AND PRESERVATION ART:
Many do not know that the vast production of illustration , advertising, pulp and pinup art was not viewed as "real art" and not appreciated as such. When the advertising, book and magazine companies were done with the art, it was casually thrown away in dumpsters.
I have interviewed personally those that were there, and just at two of these many, throw away events. In just two events, from just two of scores of companies, one in 1957 and the other in 1960, apx 20,000 pieces of art, spanning about 60 years, by great and highly skilled artists were simply thrown away.
In those dumpsters was Normal Rockwell, Gil Elvgren, Earl Moran, Mabel Rollins Harris, Henry Clive, Zoe Mozert, MacPherson, Pearl Frush, Al Leslie, Henry Hintermeister, Roy Best, Art Frahm, Billy Devorss, Runci, Munson, Thompson, Ward, and that is just to name a few of the many lost artist's work from wide ranging genre' of religious, nature, nudes, Pulp Fiction, pin-ups, Calendar, and advertising. So anything that survives, even if preserved or recreated thoughtfully is indeed precious.
VANGUARD'S FINE ART PRINT PORTFOLIO:
As much of the original paintings for vintage illustrations were lost, we at Vanguard Gallery have worked hard, and invested dearly for 20 years to find and preserve or recreate the very best, find the interesting, the historic, the rare and often important works; representing the popular culture, interests of the times. As popular art is a real window of society. This was snap shot on the aspirations, dreams and fantasies of the American people in historically unstable and increasingly violent 20th Century. I time when, family life, love, faith, hope and romance was the glue that held us together, a staple of life, not merely dismissed as "cute nostalgia".
Our more than 20 year journey and mission is more than just to present you with ascetic image, but windows of appreciations of the recent past, our history, and again window to your parents and grand parents life.
