Original 1958 Illustration Art Watercolor by K. Gunnor Petersen Christmas Fun
Here is a large and humorous Illustration Art Watercolor by K. While her husband is sleeping, his pretty blond wife takes down his Christmas present to her from his closet.
When she opens it, out pops a scolding "Santa-in-the-Box" ringing a bell with a note: Dear - Aren't you ashamed to peek? It isn't Christmas till later this week! Hubby sits up roaring with laughter while wifey is annoyed but amused!Signed "Peter Sen" lower right, and dated "12-21-58" on the back a few days before Christmas! There is much wonderful detail. Particularly in hubby's closet, with his tie-rack, golf clubs and sportsjacket, and the gift box is lavishly wrapped with red ribbon and holly paper. A gouache and watercolor illustrator with a precise, no-no-nonsense style and a terrific sense of capturing the humor of the moment, Petersen produced ad campaigns for Colgate, White Rock, Listerine, and was also long associated with two well-known powdered brands: Carnation and Ovaltine. He did magazine work for Good Housekeeping. Newsweek, King Features and American Weekly. Sometimes credited as "K Gunnor", "Gunnor Petersen", "Gunnor Peterson", and "Peter Sen". His works seldom appear on the market and this is a particularly nice example, with the added charm of Christmas! Full board is 21" x 15 1/2", illustration image is 15" x 12". All colors are vivid and fresh with no fading. Old glue borders, which can be easily covered if framed. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings".
