The Fishing Advertisement: Holeproof Hosiery (1932)

This June 1932 ad from The Saturday Evening Post for Holeproof Hosiery is a very interesting one. It features a flapper girl and her beau fishing. However, the ad as it was run misses the true beauty of this artwork, which is reproduced in color below. It's a fantastic painting, although who painted it has escaped me.
