This is an original 1954 lithograph by Stuyvesant Van Veen for B.V.D. underwear. Limited Edition Original Lithograph 588/2000.

This is not a lithograph "after" the artist. This lithograph was created by the original artist on the lithograph plate, and is, therefore, a true original lithograph.

Period Paper has obtained an extraordinary, ultra-rare collection of original lithographs by some of the premier graphic artists of the 1950's. These lithographs were produced for an annual art event in the 1950's for local businesses and major corporations largely based in New York. Historically important for corporate archivists, these are extremely rare to locate and are virtually unseen individually. The original lithographs were produced in only one edition, and included just 2,000. These lithographs are perhaps the most unique, rare, important advertising collectibles that exist for businesses and corporations.

Stuyvesant Van Veen

Stuyvesant Van Veen (1910-1987) was a New York native and American mural and genre painter who emerged onto the art scene at the age of nineteen when he exhibited as the youngest contributor at the Carnegie Institute. Van VeenÕs best known series is a compilation of seven murals celebrating the Brooklyn Dodgers; the series is still in existence, and can be seen at the Ebbets Field apartment complex of Brooklyn, New York. Van Veen was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the New York School of Industrial Art, the National Academy of Design, The Art Students League, and at the City College of New York.
