LOT NOTES
Like his contemporary, Norman Rockwell, Leslie Thrasher is best known for his covers of weekly periodicals beginning with the Saturday Evening Post in 1912, for which Thrasher produced almost two dozen covers before enlisting to fight in WWI, and then eventually his famous series for Liberty magazine. Between 1924 and 1932 Thrasher painted 360 covers for Liberty in a series titled ÒFor the Love o` LilÓ in which he showed the antics of a young fictional couple, Lil and Stanford, from youth to middle age.

This lot is being sold without reserve.
