Original 1966 Billboard Series Oil Painting by Gene Gill
Original large oil and acrylic on canvas advertising art work by Gene Gill. Painted in 1966 this advertising art was part of Gills "Billboard"series and titled" Spic & Span does the job". Depicting a man in a bath relaxing, the real star is the super clean green tiled background thanks to the power of Spic & Span box on the bottom left. The towel that hangs over the edge of the bath is an actual green towel which is attached through the canvas from the back. A great early original example of an innovative California artist, which still retains its original art exhibition label on the reverse.
Signed on the canvas: G Gill 1966
Label on the reverse: Entry information to an art show
