Another wonderful illustration by Atlanta artist Thomas Dauer who was at one time art director for Popular Mechanics Magazine in NYC. This illustration is in a dark, burled wood frame, and is approx. 17" long and 9.75" high. The image size is smaller: 10.25" x 3 3/8". The frame on this one coordinates with the color of the wood used on the gun. I have three other Dauer gun illustrations listed at the time and also a gouache of a worker at a high rise construction site. These industrial type drawings and paintings (the guns are airbrush and also pen and ink) are a neglected area in most museum collections but the talent required to produce these exacting images is considerable. Condition of these gun illustration is excellent. They were always kept in a flat file so they remain undamaged. These illustrations were acquired from the Dauer estate sale for those interested in provenance.
