CHARLES HAWES (1909-1998)

"Today is Father's Day."

Illustration for the cover of PIC: The Magazine for Young Men June, 1946. Gouache on board. 431x305 mm; 17x12 inches. Signed "Hawes" in lower right corner. Matted and framed to 21x17 1/4 inches.

Hawes' amusing image of a mother heading out to golf and bearing a wry expression of magnanimity on her face as she leaves the father of the house to spend the holiday alone with his darling, well-behaved children.
