  1. I can see where, perhaps, a young Andy Warhol might have come upon this 1937 work sometime, and the overall style, as well as the bright, bold colors of the subjects, the foreground and the background, and the treatment of secondary subjects within the posters themselves, might have spoken loudly to him, even if only in his subconscious–and stored for later use elsewhere, decades later…as stylistic ideas for a Marilyn Monroe silkscreen, and maybe even a Campbell’s Soup can.
