Victor C. Anderson (American, Texas, New York, 1882 to 1937) oil on canvas,a Life Magazine cover depicting Adam and Eve creating an invitation for his animals friends. Signed Victor C. Anderson + ES lower left. Sight size is 23 3/8 by 19 3/8 inches. Overall size with newer frame is 29 7/8 by 25 7/8 inches. Excellent condition. A partial paper label affixed to the back of the canvas has the following notation: Dont fail to invite the monkeys, Adam. They belong to one of the first families. We are not sure what this references. We do know that Anderson did several covers for Life and a color proof from Life Publishing comes with the painting. We do not know the date of publication. Excellent condition with perhaps 2% inpainting under blacklight.


Tiny amount of inpaint, perhaps 2%.
