Mead Schaeffer 1929~1931

N.C. Wyeth, Frank Brangwyn, Jean Dupas
…various influences coalesce …
colorful, painterly, stylish
Mead Schaeffer




In an interview with Gwilym G. Griffiths appearing in the Autumn 1977 issue of The Packard Cormorant (published quarterly by The Packard Club), Mead offered that "From what I can recall, their advertising agency approached me in the late Twenties and early Thirties, when I did four advertisement illustrations.... I produced four oil paintings: Spanish Lace, Oriental Rug, Russian Ballet and Duncan Phyfe. People were paying for the status of Packard ownership as much as for the excellence of the cars. It was a challenge to every artist who illustrated for Packard to portray this." (His Spanish Lace artwork was not selected for publication.)
