A classic Schaeffer.

While you are waiting for the next installment of the Westerner #194, here's Arthur Leighton Guptill on how Mead Schaeffer painted a cover for the Saturday Evening Post.
First published in American Artist, December 1945.

While American Artist didn't have color back in 1945 the Internet have.  Here's the cover with and without logo.
