ITEM: You are bidding on a beautiful, vintage 1937 Art Deco fine art calendar sample from the archives of the Thomas D. Murphy Calendar Company out of Red Oak, Iowa. A spectacular, aviation age, progress minded, machine age image titled Racing The Sun by the talented Ruehl Frederick Heckman. A wonderful view of a southwestern desert landscape through which the silhouette of a man riding a horse can be seen as a plane races the setting sun overhead. A dramatic image with a wonderful sense of awe as progress overtakes tradition. Our gallery sold this original calendar painting by Heckman several years ago ~ Measures a complete 15" x 30" with an image sight size of 10" x 13 3/4" on textured, pebbled paper stock with a lone January date pad, as this was a sample. Guaranteed to be 100% vintage and original from GrapefruitMoonGallery. As many of our bidders know, we acquired a storeroom full of these original, archived Thomas D. Murphy Calendar Company inventory calendar prints (mostly their pin-up images) several years ago. These original sample lithographs were kept in flat files in the Iowa warehouse and acquired directly from their vaults. The print quality is spectacular and print quantities were minimal. The custom, low-pulp paper stock the company used has kept the deep and bright colors from fading or toning. CONDITION: This original calendar sample is in very fine, uncirculated condition with the most minor handling wear. Please review the photos within the listing for a detailed view.
