1959 Mischievous Vintage Mid-Century R. Jones Magazine Illustration- Seductive Sea-Side Siren is Admittedly Notorious Husband Hunter! Simply Scandalous Original Vintage Mid-Century Ad taken from the pages of a April, 1960 issue of Saturday Evening Post Magazine. Done with great wit, humor flair and more than a little va-va-voom, this image is the epitome of magazine illustration for the period- bright splashes of color, a devious dame and a slightly suspicious yet dazzled gent. Artist R. Jones employs bold color palette, swirls of motion and interesting perspective to give the image flair and drama. Note the warm tones of orange in the gents shirt against the cooling hues of the sirens bathing suit and the almost cinematic sense of space light and perspective. The caption underneath reminds us of what the actual intent is as the Taylor-like siren states " I was going over your qualifications in my mind." Beautiful if slightly lurid bit of Mid-Century magazine illustration- story is entitled, The Husband Hunter, still a high standard of quality in the periodicals. Image measures 11 x 15 condition is crisp clean and excellent. Colors of scan do not fully do justice to the dazzlingly vivid allure of the image. Will be 'swellegant on display with any decor and quite possibly spark some smart conversations amongst your own little circle at your next elegant soiree!
