1962 Illustrated Ad, Gallo Wines, Romantic Evening with Elegant Woman & Man at Party, Artist Coby Whitmore (2-page advert)
Opening advert text:
"Soft music, quiet thoughts, pleasant company. What a wonderful way to start an evening, or end the day. And what could make the mood... and the food... more wonderful than serving a fine wine?"
Ad was illustrated by the incomparable American artist Maxwell Coburn (Coby) Whitmore (June 11, 1913 - October 12, 1988); during this era, Whitmore created illustrations for many major magazine covers, including "Saturday Evening Post" and "Ladies Home Journal," and did the artwork for many national print ad campaigns, including Gallo Wine. He was inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1978.
