Object Name Clipping, Magazine
Description Color offset lithograph on white paper. Magazine clipping featuring the July 24, 1948 Saturday Evening Post cover. The cover features the illustration "Photos on Fake Broncos" by John Falter. The illustration depicts a family of four standing and riding on a horse and a bull for a photograph. In the foreground is a man in a tan shirt, pants, cowboy hat, and boots holding the camera. A sign with photograph prices is standing up next to the photographer. He is waving to one man riding a bull to move over. A woman with blond hair is standing by the back of the horse. A girl is sitting backwards on the back of a brown horse, and a blonde boy is bending over to look in the eye of the horse. Behind the scene is their grey car with "N.Y. to L.A." painted crudely on the back. In the distance is a gas station and watertower. The sky is blue with a few white clouds above a flat expanse of yellow and grey landscape. Bluffs stick up on the sides, and a grey road runs along the left edge accompanied by telephone poles and wire. On the lower left corner is the artist's printed and handwritten in ink signature. At the top of the page is title of the magazine, date, and a listing of articles contained in the magazine.
