Artist Don Neiser, who lived in Greensboro, NC at the end of his life, made thousands of illustrations for magazines and advertisements over his 60-year career. His work appeared in everything from Good Housekeeping
, and featured famous faces, including Grace Kelly before she became a movie star. Sometimes he would be required to create many illustrations in a day, and so he painted in casein, which dried more quickly than oil. As magazines turned to photography to accompany their stories and advertisements, Neiser's commercial contracts slowed, but he continued to work, at one time painting a mural at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. His illustrative style was emblematic of the mid-century aesthetic, and his works conjure the confident attitude of post-WWII America.
We have sold a number of original works by Don Neiser in recent auctions, and are offering another selection in our current Modern Art & Design Session
. Works by Neiser, both sold and upcoming, are shown below.
