    Charles Lassell: Two Watercolor Works by This Well-Known Western Illustration Artist. One consists of the two facing pages for the beginning of a magazine article entitled "Murder Buck," a pre-1932-period, signed by the artist. The second is an unsigned image of a cowboy on a white horse, painted on the back side. Each image is 16" x 11.25". Very colorful, with lots of decorative appeal. Nicely custom framed, with glass on front and back, to 25" x 20".

    Lassell (1894 - 1958), sometimes known as Charles LaSalle, began his career in a studio in the famous Beaux Arts Building in NYC, along with other prestigious illustration artists such as Harold Anderson and J.C. Leyendecker. His work appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, Liberty, Boy's Life, Field and Stream, Outdoor Life, and McCall's. Later he would produce corporate art for such prestigious employers as Ford Motor Co., General Electric, General Motors, Schlitz Beer, and Shell Oil. Toward the end of his life he resided in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he did occasional work for Arizona Highways and concentrated mainly on painting Western subjects. This lot requires 3rd party shipping.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
