This advertising poster for the early-twentieth century general
interest magazine Scribner's carries an image by William
Glackens. Well-known as a painter, Glackens began his career as
an artist-reporter to picture magazines and illustrated newspapers
at the turn of the century. This poster is part of gift from C.
Carter Smith, Jr., of eight rare and seldom seen posters dating
from the 1890s to 1963, which includes recruiting posters for the
Gestapo and posters advertising such diverse subjects as Maxims
Bar in Berlin, Prince of Wales Havana cigars, and a rally for the
1963 John F. Kennedy-Haile Selassie parade.
