Comment: As billboards sprung up across the country;
that is not just in the cities... the need for illustrators who could
present the advertisers product to a populace that was literally
in motion grew rapidly. Includes printed calendar. Plenty were good
and plenty were not, but Scott can certainly be counted as one of
the greats. With his depiction of American types, the ability to
create the straightforward ideas that sold product and his great
technique, Scott stayed in demand, painting for scores of the top
advertisers of the day.
