Go Team Go! 1910 Palmer Singer
Exxon Great Moments In Early American Motoring calendar illustration

Signed "Harry Anderson" (lower right)
Gouche on board

This scene, set in 1910, depicts a group of college football fanatics driving to the big game in a handsome 1910 Palmer Singer motor car. The dynamic composition comes from celebrated illustrator Harry Anderson’s series entitled Great Moments In Early American Motoring that appeared in Exxon and Esso calendars produced in the late 1960s to early 1970s. Skillfully executed in brilliant color, the work perfectly conveys the speed and novel fun this early automobile would have provided.

Harry Anderson was a prolific, award-winning illustrator who received his art education at the Syracuse School of Art. He worked on several national advertising campaigns for brands such as Coca-Cola, Ford and American Airlines, and he created illustrations for some of the most popular magazines of the day including The Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping and Cosmopolitan. In 1994, he was inducted into the Society of Illustrator’s Hall of Fame. Anderson is known best for his car calendar illustrations such as the present work, and because those calendars were popular with vintage car enthusiasts Anderson was careful to render the automobiles with meticulous detail and accuracy.
