Time Magazine Original Cover Art French General Wwii By Ernest Baker:
This one of a kind work of art is an actual painting made for the cover of Time Magazine but not used - it is an "alternate cover." Time would commission three or four paintings, from which one was chosen by the editors as the final cover, depending on several factors including what was most relevant in the news that week. Will be shipped fully insured.
Pictured is an unknown French General. No date listed, WWII era.
Painting itself is on 8" x 8-3/4" textured art paper, done in pencil and paint. Unsigned, originated from the Baker estate.
Ernest Hamlin Baker (1889-1975) was a self-taught artist and illustrator who did more than 300 covers for Time Magazine. The original artwork for many of these covers are in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. A truly remarkable talent, many have been awed by the photographic accuracy of Baker's cover portraits.
